Youth Sailing

Paignton Junior Sailing Club (PJSC) provides sailing tuition and race training for youngsters from 9 years of age. We aim to encourage youngsters to have fun out on the water in safety and to enjoy dinghy sailing.

Our next junior course is the RYA Level 1 (Juniors) - 26th & 27th May 2024  £160 (non-members) £140 (Members) Book here

Youth Sailing Night  During the summer months, end of March onwards, we will again be using Friday nights as our Junior Sailing night. This is incorporated under the banner of Big Friday Night Sailing in the club programme. The format will allow our juniors to have fun in a safe and structured learning environment to progress their sailing skills. During the Junior sessions, we will undertake a range of activities afloat including informal training to short races and cruises to nearby beaches.

Family and parental support are really important both on and off the water. We are keen for parents to get involved on the harbour side, galley, or as instructors, rescue boat drivers or support and general helpers or even learn to sail and sail themselves. Through participating in the Friday nights, you can learn how to rig and launch our dinghies and help man our safety boats while enjoying watching the youth sailors sail in our beautiful bay.

All abilities are welcome and having your own boat is not a requirement.  We have a range of Club boats, which provide a range of sailing experiences, available for hire at affordable prices. Boat hire ranges from £6 to £15 including Toppers, Picos, Fevas, Fusions, Visions and the Laser 2000 for those more experienced.

Advancing into racing  On Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings we cater for juniors to compete in the club racing. Full rescue cover is provided, however, we expect all those competing to be confident in the prevailing conditions and to have parental backup ashore. Club boats can be hired for these racing sessions, however, we are encouraging boat ownership for juniors who want to progress their sailing, particularly into racing.

Boat ownership has many benefits and should not be a prohibitive cost. We can advise and help in the sourcing of a suitable boat, as well as boat parking. In addition, we are actively promoting participation in Regional and national training in the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) development squads. Currently, we have juniors competing and involved in regional/national squad training and competitions.
