Bug Week Is Back! Wednesday 31st of July - Sunday 4th August 2024

For those who haven't experienced it before, this is an opportunity for your child to experience 5 full days of sailing fun, on and off the water.

Cost: £150 per child for all 5 days (20% sibling discount), includes lunch and t-shirt for the child +1 adult

Open to all members of Worthing Sailing Club 8-18 years old

Training is provided by a team of qualified RYA instructors led by Liz and Andy. This year, we will also be welcoming a very special guest trainer (details to follow) who will offer the children an opportunity for specialist training sessions.


The cost includes lunches for the children. Food for adults can be ordered and paid for separately details to follow.

Participation - what you need to know before you book

Bug week is full-on for everyone attending, and to make it a success we rely on the support and enthusiasm of children and parents alike. Please note before booking:

  • A parent or designated adult must be present during the week.
  • You must be able to launch your own child's boat as well as help others.
  • Additional roles such as Power Boat Helm, Power Boat Crew, Beach Master and Club House Helpers will also be required by all adults

Bug Week Party Time! (Saturday 3rd August)

The bar will be open, and everyone will be asked to bring a plate so we can all kick back and celebrate the children's successes.

Pirate Day

Back by popular demand this year we will be bringing back 'Pirate Day'. This will be a fun-filled day when the children will be encouraged to bring their pirate accessories, only authentic-looking pirates can make their instructors walk the plank and we will have lots of themed games, sail along the coast to claim new territory and hunt for treasure
