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 in September (or sometimes at the marina) - structured training by experienced volunteer sailors

Summer evening Sailing There are a couple of opportunities to sail on the sea this year on Thursdays so on the 1/8 and 15/8 we shall be sailing from the club if the wind is suitable, if not we will be at the lake (I will update this if the wind isn't suitable or email Tony ( or Steve ( to check) . Arrive at 6pm and we will try and get all who turn up onto the water, and sail around the bay. This is a normal club evening sailing slot so they will have to be confident sailing, there will be rescue cover and one of the instructors will be there to help them prepare and get onto the water.

The 8/8 we shall be at the lake grounds from 6pm, until it gets dark probably.

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.
