What is Junior Week?

Dell Quay Junior Week is a week long opportunity for all Juniors to progress their sailing skills, have some fun on the water and to enjoy time with their friends. Throughout the week, the Juniors will follow the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme and may be awarded a certificate at the end of the week. Older Juniors may be eligible for the RYA Seamanship Skills course.

This year, there will be an introductory and theory session on Sunday 30th July from 3pm to 5pm. The sailing runs from the Monday to Friday. Each day is about 7 hours long, based around high tide times. Monday 31st July is likely to start around 8am, with the start getting progressively later throughout the week. It is important that Juniors are able to attend for all 6 days.

Is there anything I need to do in advance?

You should login to Sailing Club Manager to ensure emergency contact information and any special medical / dietary information is included in your Juniors Sailing Club Manager record. This will be used for planning and throughout the week, so it is vital it is accurate. You can check this by selecting the green Update button to the right of your child's/granchild's name. If there is no special medical / dietary information, please insert “None” so that we know the information has been updated.
