Childrens Learn To Sail
NEXT JUNIOR LEARN TO SAIL COURSES
There are no planned upcoming Junior Learn to Sail courses.
LTS is Torbay Sailing Club’s ‘Learn To Sail’ programme for young sailors aged approx 9 to 13 years.
Over three full days your child will learn the basic skills of sailing needed to progress as young sailors.
Children’s programmes are sailed in very good condition Optimist boats which are provided by Torbay Sailing Club. Each course is limited to a very small class of just eight students at a time. This meets club requirements for low instructor pupil ratios and fits the number of LTS boat available.
Torbay Sailing Club uses indestructible plastic boats which are stored and used exclusively by the club for LTS training, these are clearly visible from the shore for parents' peace-of-mind. There is no need for parents to buy a boat before starting the course! We allow you try the sport and then buy if it's right for you.
The cost is $380 in total for the 3 day course and includes boat hire, friendly coaches and small personal groups.
Children are required to swim 50 metres. Bring a fitting lifejacket if your child has one, otherwise the club can provide one. A wetsuit or warm clothing is highly recommended if not mandatory (especially for the pre Xmas intake). If you require advice on equipment talk to the LTS contact person at time of booking.
If you wish to enrol a child or enquire further please contact us as soon as possible by email below with your interest – and well prior to start dates as each intake is limited in numbers and there is often a waiting list:
