Easter Active Windsurf Beginner

Southampton

Active Windsurf courses are designed around the RYA Youth Windsurf Scheme; beginner covers stages one and two over a fun, hands-on week. We start the lessons close to the shore, teaching children the parts of the board and rig and to sail away and return to a chosen start point. We keep each session as practical as possible; as confidence grows we sail further from the centre and play games to develop skills and understanding. By the end of the week they should all be able to sail on all points of sail in light winds know how to turn around both directions.

What to bring

Meals

Participants should bring a packed lunch, you are welcome to use the fridge and microwave at the centre. Alternatively, lunch can be purchased from nearby shops and restaurants.

Refreshments

Hot drinks and water are available from the Centre.

Valuables

We do have a small safe onsite that can hold phones and car keys, however we suggest leaving expensive valuables at home.

Clothing List

We will provide all specialist equipment such as buoyancy aids, wetsuits and waterproofs.

We advise you bring:

  1. Closed toe footwear

  4. Change of clothes - other than the ones you will wear afloat
  5. Towel, Sun Glasses & security strap, sun screen.
