Update 2020: We are following government COVID regulations and are not able to run Cadets at present.
Cadets are club members aged 5 to 17. We meet monthly with the intent of having fun, and gaining confidence and competence on the water. The Cadets programme will include monthly Saturday afternoon sessions, starting 8th April, and bi-weekly Friday 6pm-8pm sessions, starting 4th May. The Saturday sessions will be focused on supervised sailing while the Friday sessions will focus on training towards RYA Youth stages 1-4 and racing. In order to deliver this programme we will need to help from parents and volunteer Instructors and Assistant Instructors.
In order to participate in cadets session all cadets will be required to complete the Cadets enrolment form. Also note while all cadets sessions are fully supervised parents/guardians retain responsibility for their children. Therefore cadets age 5 to 7 must have one‐to‐one parental supervision and parents/guardians of children aged 8 to 17 (inclusive) must remain on site throughout the session.
Family Sailing at its best
We are a family friendly sailing club and enjoy some of the best sailing waters on the North Kent coast. Our favourable location and our own slipway access mean that we are able to launch and recover at most states of the tide. We have members of all ages and abilities, and anyone interested in sailing with us can be sure of receiving plenty of help and encouragement.
