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.

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 12th May (or sometimes at the marina) - structured training by experienced volunteer sailors

9th June, we will be sailing in Optimists only as there is a course on. we may catch up on some knot tying.

16th June No sailing Portishead Carnival. 

Cadets Try Sail - have happened for this year, if your are still interested please drop us an email at the address below.

Summer evening Sailing (July-Sept) - 6-8pm fun sailing. 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.
