Training for Junior and Novice Sailors.

Worthing Sailing Club’s youth training scheme was started in June 2009 when the club organised an open day to encourage more people to take up the sport of sailing. The club had borrowed 6 small dinghies called Bugs from Laser UK. The club’s Bosun was so impressed with them that he persuaded 5 stalwart members to sponsor them and we bought them there and then. Seeing the potential to increase the club’s membership the treasurer recommended that the club purchase them and they have been a great asset to the club in so much that we have achieved a 10% increase in membership.

We now have three fully qualified RYA Dinghy Instructors along with a Senior Instructor and four assistant instructors to teach sailing to children aged 8 to 16 years old. Fun is the main goal in teaching that is carried out in a safe and controlled manner and we always have a rescue boat in attendance with qualified first aiders on hand. The Bug School (as we first called it) that runs from May to October has grown from 6 pupils to now having over 40 children in the school. We also have an annual Bug week in August where 24 children and their parents had lots of Fun and a fantastic time messing about in boats and each sailor was awarded a club certificate.

With recognised funding from the RYA the Club is now working to become a fully operational RYA Training Centre in the not too distant future and at the last AGM the club’s membership agreed to purchase 4 more Laser Pico’s and a Laser Bahia to enhance the school and teach adults as well.

With the help of dedicated club volunteers and the parents’ involvement the School is achieving outstanding success so if you would like to give your children a wonderful experience or even learn to sail yourself and have lots of FUN please contact the Club’s School Secretary
