Childrens Learn To Sail


Junior Learn to Sail (LTS) Holiday Programme October 2017

LTS is the name given to Torbay Sailing Club’s ‘Learn To Sail’ programme for young sailors aged approx 9 to 13 years.

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.

LTS Boats

Torbay Sailing Club uses indestructable 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 its right for you.


The cost is $350 in total for the 3 day course and includes boat hire, friendly coaches and small personal groups.


The NEXT JUNIOR SAILOR INTAKE is scheduled for 2nd, 3rd & 4th October and 9th, 10th & 11th October 2017.
We suggest you register your interest ASAP.


Children are required to swim 50 metres, and to come with a fitting lifejacket suitable for sailing. 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.

Enrol Early
