Morning (06-12:00)

Junior Club

We have a large variety of craft, from small Optibat’s to Wayfarer and everything in between. Join us on a Saturday morning at  9 am until 12 pm. We begin with a short introduction in the training room where we appraise the conditions of the day and plan our activities. Before you set foot near a boat, you will be provided with all the kit you need to enjoy a morning out on the water. We have girls and boys changing facilities, with showers and lockers and plenty of space to climb into a wetsuit, buoyancy-aid and helmet. On colder days, we even provide an extra waterproof layer coat and trousers. Once on the water, you will be given direction and instruction from senior instructors who follow alongside in a powerboat. The main focus is to simply learn to enjoy sailing in the beautiful setting of the Gorton Lower Reservoir next to Debdale Park, and under the supervision of an excellent team of instructors with a wealth of experience. On days when the conditions are a little too windy (or the lake is iced over!), we move to our indoor climbing wall. However, this is quite rare as we manage to get on the water on the vast majority of Saturdays.
