RYA OnBoard

What will I be doing? You will practice and develop the skills you have learned so far, try different boats and most of all have fun! Instructors will be there to enable progress and organise activities. This year we will also be including modular training towards further RYA qualifications.

Green Withens has been awarded OnBoard status by the Royal Yachting Association.

Here are the aims:

Run by sailing’s National Governing Body, the RYA, OnBoard is a highly successful industry supported grass roots programme which seeks to make sailing easier to get into for young people. Over a ten year period the programme aims to introduce a minimum of 500,000 children to sailing in the UK, converting over 10% of them into regular participants. So far it’s nicely on track.

When can I come? We will be running this club from the earlier time of 11.30 until 16.00 every Saturday from 23rd April to the 28th of October.

Who can come? You must have completed the Sailing Staged Activity Badge – Stage Two or be able to sail to a similar standard. You must also be able to swim 50 metres and be confident in the water.

How much will it cost? £7 per session to include use of a wetsuit and buoyancy aid. You will pay each time you come in either cash or by cheque made payable to “Green Withens Water Sports Centre” If you would like to attend Saturday Club, please complete the registration form found below and bring it with you on the first time you attend.
