We are offering youths who have completed their Stage 2, 3 or 4 (or have the equivalent experience) the opportunity to sail out on the sea from Brighton Marina on a weekly basis. The sessions are instructor led and will include coaching and some racing pointers to hone in on their skills and get the most out of the boats!
For this youth Coastal Sailing Club we use our our Delphia 24 keelboats: This is a larger, more stable boat with a fixed keel which stops the boat from capsizing. Keel boats are a step up in size from dinghies, more like a small manageable yacht but not as big as a cruising yacht. They can bridge the gap between dinghies and cruisers, offering many benefits of both, to our young keen sailors.
This club is pay as you go and it not included in membership.
We have two centres in Brighton please make sure you head to the correct one. This activity takes place at Hove Lagoon, Kingsway, Hove, East Sussex BN3 4LX.
