River 1 Group
Children joining our River 1 group have generally sailed for at least one season already in our Pond group. At this stage all children will need to have their own boat and we recommend the Optimist as the preferred dinghy.
The River 1 group will build on the confidence and skills that have been learnt on the pond to enable children to safely sail on the river. Training sessions will focus on learning about tides and wind whilst perfecting basic boat handling skills. Children will also learn how to rig their own boat.
At the end of their time in this group children should be able to sail happily and confidently in a variety of weather conditions.
