PYSC Cadets - Introduction


Our aim is to teach a range of sailing skills to our junior members in the safe environment of the Lake Grounds and when the time is right introduce them gradually with our full support to the more challenging conditions found off of the club at Sugar Loaf Beach.

PYSC follow a syllabus based on the RYA Scheme to teach Cadets to sail or improve their skills.

We run a thriving Cadets section open to all Junior and young Family Members, numbers will be limited for some sessions, so please get in touch to see if we can accommodate you (minimum age 8).

Saturdays - 9.30 at the Lake grounds starting 13th May (or sometimes at the marina) - structured training by volunteer instructors

Cadets Try Sail - open sessions on 27th May, 3rd June and 10th June - ALL WELCOME - come along to the Lakegrounds from 9.45am

Thursdays (July-Sept) - 6-8pm fun sailing.  Starts on June15th at 6pm. There is no instruction at these sessions. Adults are welcome at these sessions too.

Please always check the website for whether a session is running each week.

As cadets progress we encourage them to attend any of the main sailing events and race in Class 3, where they can be closely supervised, or sail as crew and learn to use spinnakers and trapezes.
