Minorca Sailing is ideal for all the family, with every member participating in the day’s activity as much or as little as they wish. For all children four years upwards, our daily programme offers sailing and windsurfing to suit all levels. Our children’s instructors and nannies are experts at keeping all of our young guests happy, leaving you free to enjoy your holiday while they enjoy theirs.
To ensure your children have the very best holiday possible, we divide the groups by age, encouraging new skills and friendships to quickly develop.
• The Crèche (4 months - 4 years)
• Pirates (4 - 5 years)
• Explorers (6 - 7 years)
• Juniors (8 - 9 years)
• Young Sailors (10 - 12 years)
• Teenagers (13+ years)
For easy and speedy communications, our RYA qualified instructors are linked by radio with the safety boat drivers and the shore. You can be sure that we will look after your children at all times when they are out on the water.
Children’s and Teenager’s Clubs
We provide sailing and windsurfing for children and teenagers throughout the season, with our full daily programmes and activities operating in July and August, and half-terms during May and October.
With our enthusiastic team of instructors the fun never stops. They organise many activities including beach games for children volleyball for teenagers, and on the water videoing for all. Our instructors strive to keep your children and teenagers happy and entertained throughout their stay.
RYA Levels and Certificates
RYA levels can be achieved and certificates awarded whilst on holiday with Minorca Sailing. Tuition is included, however, certificates and log books are an additional cost.
Every afternoon after the normal group sessions, we offer additional tuition at no extra cost. This provides our older children and teenagers with the opportunity to sail some of our more advanced and technical asymmetric boats with an instructor onboard. Younger children may enjoy using the time to try their hand at trapezing. Teenagers and children of all ages may choose to learn to windsurf or improve their windsurfing technique during these late afternoon sessions.
