Youth & Junior SailingNews

GWSC is committed to providing sailing opportunities and development for young people to bring them into the sport and develop their interest, skills and enjoyment.

Our RYA recognised Training Centre offers junior and youth dinghy sailing and windsurfing instruction. For those wanting to race, Team Grafham Racing provides a coached introduction to racing and youth sailors are welcome to join our “friendly” pursuit race on Friday evenings, introductory handicap racing on Saturday afternoons as well as more serious racing on Wednesday evenings and Sundays.

Details of our 2019 Courses and all our youth activities can be found here.

Summer Camp

This has been a popular feature of our junior sailing programme since 2014.

During the day (09:30 to 17:00), we offer opportunities to sail dinghies and catamarans, to windsurf and to powerboat in a ‘fun’ environment.  Camping on site is a further option, exercised by many participants, that ensures club is a lively place throughout the week.

Half Term Fun

Three days during May and October Half Terms. Participants will take part in a range of sailing activities including seamanship, adventures and some race training. The focus will be on having fun in a relaxed environment rather than gaining RYA certificates.
