Youth Group Sea Badgers 

Ahoy there! You've earned your Stage 3 and want to go sailing with the mates you've made along the way? Come and join Youth Group! We will improve your sailing skills through fun games and exercises where you can sail with (and against!) your sailing chums!

Sea Badger Sailing

Youth Group Sea Badgers is a fun, social opportunity for those aged 9-15 to get on the water with other young members throughout the main season on Sunday afternoons.  We aim to offer support both socially and to develop your sailing skills, building a strong community of youth sailors and parents.

Our sea badger sessions are for those who want to gain confidence and have fun on the water.  Each session will focus on a skill and will run games and exercises based on that focus.  By the end of the term you'll have had fun competing against your friends and be ready to join Youth Group Race if that is the path for you!

The sessions are led by the QM Professional Instructor Team with the support of parent volunteers.  To join Youth Group, participants need to have completed RYA Stage 3 and be a member of QM.  Parents (or a responsible adult acting in loco parentis) must remain onsite throughout the sessions, and there are also plenty of opportunities for parents to get involved in volunteer roles.  Link to Parent volunteers page. 


Dates and How to Book

Anyone wishing to take part (including those with their own boat) must book a term at a time through the QM office or online. You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your place.  Booking is open to members with confident RYA Stage 3 skills or above.
