Junior Courses

Welcome to our youth sailing and windsurfing courses! Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced sailor, we have something for everyone. Our multi-activity courses are designed to build confidence and provide pathways to instructor training.

At QMSC we follow the RYA Youth syllabus, ensuring that you receive top-quality instruction. Our sessions are taught by RYA Instructors who create a fun and supportive environment for learning. You'll engage in a combination of formal and informal practical and theory sessions, giving you a well-rounded sailing and windsurfing education.

Upon successful completion of the syllabus, you will be awarded RYA certification. While we cannot guarantee certification, our primary focus is on helping each student reach their full potential during their time with us. We strive to bring out the best in all our students and help them develop their skills and passion for sailing and windsurfing.

Our courses are available from Easter through to the Autumn half term, catering to children aged 8-15 years. So whether you're looking for an exciting new adventure or aiming to advance your sailing skills, join us for an unforgettable experience on the water.
