Junior Sailing

We teach Junior Stage 1, 2, 3, 4, and Advanced Modules: Start Racing, Intermediate Racing, Seamanship Skills, Day Sailing, Sailing with Spinnakers, and Performance Sailing.

It is run by highly qualified volunteer RYA Sailing Instructors and Assistants with help from club members and parents. All these people give up their free time to pass on their knowledge and experience to the young people in Neyland Yacht Club and parents are encouraged to help with rigging, launching, recovery and supervision.

We are a recognised training centre for the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and a British Youth Sailing Recognised Club. We have been teaching sailing at all levels for many years. All the Instructors are experienced sailors, qualified powerboat drivers and competent in first aid.
