Maylandsea Bay S.C. Sail Training
At Maylandsea Bay S.C. we can offer a good dinghy-training package for the complete novice and to those who want to learn more. You don’t even need to own a boat, as the club has its own training fleet of Picos along with a small training fleet of Wayfarers. Added to this, some of our more experienced sailors will be on hand to pass on their expertise. Training is for youngsters over the age of seven and the young at heart up to old age. A parent or guardian must accompany all youngsters up to the age of 16
Sailing is a great sport, whether it’s just to learn something new or challenge yourself. Not only can we teach you to sail in a competent manner, as you get more experienced, we can also teach you to race around our short courses, as this is where the confidence grows.
All the on water training takes place in the safe waters in front of the club, Safety is paramount, safety boats with experienced crews will be watching your every move. The waters are tidal but as we are at the end of a sheltered creek the flow is not as great as you might find in other locations making it a good place to start your enjoyment of sailing. Please note that lifejackets must be worn at all times near or on the water (we have a number of life jackets should you need to borrow one).
If your are just starting out with sailing, some of you may already have suitable clothing but if you haven’t, then the club has an abundance of pre-loved clothing for you to borrow.
Training takes place on Saturdays, with the dates and times shown in the sailing club programme.
As training is a facility that the club offers to its members, should you wish to try sailing before you join, then this can be arranged.
Our Training officer with many years experience, both as a trainer and sailor is Paul Wilkinson Aka WILKS. For further information contact; Paul Wilkinson
