Juniors at the BSC

At the BSC we have a vibrant junior section sailing every Friday evening from April to September. Children of all capabilities, from absolute beginners to experienced racers (some of whom compete nationally), are encouraged to get afloat and enjoy the river under the watchful eyes of volunteer coaches and club members in fleet of safety boats. We also offer Tuesday evening dinghy racing for those in the River Race group.
Our main aim is to teach children how to be safe on the water so they can discover the fun to be had messing about in boats. Depending on inclination, age and ability our juniors can simply start out by having rides in 'Volunteer', our motor launch, before learning to sail an Optimist and then progressing to RS Teras, Toppers, Lasers, RS Fevas, 29ers.
Over the years we have had many junior sailors selected to join RYA squads, with five last in one year. A few of our young sailors go on to compete Nationally and Internationally which in turn had brought us a double World Champion in both RS Fevas and RS Aero 5.
