Junior Race Coaching

Junior racing sessions provide a fantastic opportunity for juniors of an intermediate/ advanced standard to come to the club and begin to race with other juniors in their own boats, or club boats (where pre-booked).

Parents are required to be responsible for their juniors during these sessions and should remain at DQSC whilst their children are on the water. Please contact the Class Captain in advance to confirm your place so that sufficient safety cover can be organised.

Juniors taking part should be able to sail to RYA Level 2 standard and essentially:

1. be able to rig the boats themselves
2. sail a triangular course
3. recover a capsize

The Class Captain for the juniors is Hilary Sparks, assisted by the following Junior Class Captains: Francesca Sprules, Beckie Manning, Henry Bettle, Phoebe Noble, Dominic White, Matt Smaller and James White.

Junior Sail Training

We run RYA Youth Sailing Scheme courses; juniors attending these courses will be working towards RYA approved qualifications, which are internationally recognised. They will be running as an addition to the race coaching, the race series and Junior Week, so keep you eyes peeled for the latest course developments. For more details see the Training Programme pages of the Yearbook or the Training pages of this website.

Book a place on any of these courses using our online booking form.

We look forward to seeing you all on the water.

You can also book a club boat using our online booking form
