The Pirates group and their exciting, enthusiastic team can frequently be heard sailing around the bay. Our carefully selected sailing instructors encourage ‘safe fun on the water’, and make the most of the short concentration spans of very young children by varying the activities throughout the day.
They may be sailing an Optimist or RS tera with a friend, crewing a Pico or trapezing on an RS Venture. The days are always different and fun, and activities are aimed at introducing and improving sailing skills and confidence on the water. The Pirates programme includes expeditions to beaches and islands around the bay, treasure hunts, exploring, beach games and beach Olympics with all the other children, and even a Mini-Regatta!
The groups are small and well supervised with a high ratio of instructors to children, making it easy to learn new skills and quickly make new friends.
