Dolphins and Sharks returns again this May on Fridays with a Parent Information and Registration evening on Friday 28th April and sailing commencing on Friday 5th May. Cadets will be shown how to rig and get their boats ready and a brief intro to sailing for those who haven’t done it before.

Dolphins and Sharks is a BYC parent-led initiative to help introduce children to sailing for the first time, or to build up confidence in children on the water following up from previous D&S sessions or RYA courses. (Sharks need to be able to helm a dinghy)

Sessions start on the water from 6:00pm – the club will be open from 5:00pm to get ready with registration from 5:30pm.

D&S will use club Pico’s and Bahia’s although members are encouraged to use their own (or borrowed) boats to improve capacity. Wetsuits, spray jackets and buoyancy aids can be provided where available.

More experienced sailors with own boats may be taken for facilitated coaching sessions if there is sufficient interest – Toppers, Laser 4.7s and Laser Radials.

Every Dolphin must have a designated parent or guardian to remain on-site whilst the sessions are underway. All parents are encouraged to assist with the sessions – whether afloat sailing or rescue, or ashore as beach-master or assisting with registration and helping to organise clothing and boats.

For more details please see the main Dolphins & Sharks page
