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

Sailing at the lakegrounds @9:30  when lake fills up a bit

15th Sep: Sailing on the Marina - Cadets and Adults welcome

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 (16th August- 6th Sept) - 6-til late fun sailing. There is no instruction at these sessions. There will be safety boat on hand. Adults are welcome at these sessions too. These sessions are starting slightly later as we haven't got anyone to cover the first couple of weeks. The level in the lake is currently very low so any activities would resemble bog snorkling at the moment.

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.
