WKSC has a thriving junior section and we are always pleased to welcome new junior members. They are the club’s future and parents are encouraged to be involved in their children’s sailing activities. 

We are an RYA Onboard hub and our aim is to promote sailing for young people whether they want to progress in competitive racing or would prefer to gain an RYA qualification and develop seamanship skills. We also offer the chance for our Juniors to become RYA Assistant Instructors who then help with our sailing program, passing on their knowledge to others.

Many of our activities are open to Non-members who would like to give sailing or the club a go! 

We also offer Beginners courses

Currently we have a number of options for Juniors – for full details / sign up click on the below links;
