RYA OnBoard After School Sailing
After School Sailing at Brading Haven Yacht Club
supported by Spence Willard Estate Agency
Brading Haven Yacht Club is a recognised RYA Dinghy Training Centre and we run our After School Club for Junior and Youth sailors from April to September. We follow the RYA OnBoard program.
The Club is very much a community based club and we have a long tradition of teaching young members to sail and run sailing sessions throughout the year. After School sessions are for BHYC cadets, local children from schools, Scouts, Brownies and other local groups to come and join in the fun of on the water activities from sailing , powerboat, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking.
Each sailor receives an RYA logbook and is awarded the appropriate certificate at the end of the sessions if RYA stages are booked.
Onboard offers anyone aged 8 up to 16 years old the chance to try sailing and on the water fun through a local sailing club. The programme teaches a wide range of skills that can help every cadet on the water and in life generally. On the water offers excitement, exhilaration, relaxation and endless enjoyment. Also Onboard has a big effect on personal development, increased confidence and greater independence and helps improve communication skills. Whether you join on your own or as part of a group, you'll be sure to make new friends- you don't need to have sailed before so come and join us on the water this year.
