Day Sailing

Southampton
sailing - Up to 9 people

Description

Join us at SWAC for a week of fun and exciting introduction to day sailing. SWAC is known for our emphasis on having fun while learning new skills, in the heart of Southampton. 

What is it? 

We run the Day Sailing advanced module over five days, during the week we introduces children to the navigational techniques and prior planning required to safely explore their local area. Enabling you to plan your own adventure is a big responsibility so we split up the theory and chart work across several short trips to keep the week exciting and allow plenty of opportunity for practice. 

Weather permitting, Wednesday usually offer the best tides for a longer passage to let sailors get some miles in their logbooks before putting all their newly found skills into practice and leading the Friday day sail for all our young sailors. 

We teach at a ratio of 9:1 meaning children are well supervised and receive specific feedback to make sure they enjoy mastering the sport. Children can expect to sail a boat on their own, or with a friend. 

When is it? 

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are offering childcare solutions to the public. 

To ensure that we can provide a safe environment for your children and our staff, we are implementing the following procedures: 

  1. We ask that you not send your child if they, or anyone in the household is showing symptoms of COVID-19. 
  2. We will colour coordinate all groups, so your child will join their group straight away after morning sign in. When booking additional days, please always register your child into the same colour group. 
  3. We will also all children to wash their hands upon arrival, in between activity sessions and prior to eating. 
  4. We will offer activities that do not require high physical support / physical contact. 
  5. We will be deep cleaning twice daily as a minimum standard. 

Who is it for? 

Young sailors who have previously completed ‘Stage 4’ aged twelve to sixteen years old. We recommend participants have also completed ‘Sailing with Spinnakers’ to ensure they have the experience and skills to get the most out of the week. 

How much is it? 

  1. £295 per week (peak) or £245 per week (off-peak) including your RYA logbook and certificate. 
  2. Early Drop Off and Late Pick Up are available - bolt these on at the checkout.
