Summer Courses

Good winds, warm temperatures and smiles!

The final session and certificates

Our junior courses begin on 10 July. We have spaces on all of the summer courses (booking opens on 4 March), so it's not too late to reserve your place. No payment is required to make a booking - we expect to send invoices for course fees at the start of June this year.
The courses are popular and are well-staffed with a good instructor to student ratio, so we can put instructors into boats to provide coaching tips. Many young people, who are just beginning sailing, find this very reassuring, as they can progress at their own pace without feeling worried. Our range of dinghies gives us lots of options to suit all abilities, with advanced students beginning in Toppers, before moving on quickly to RS Fevas and even 420s before the end of the week!
Do get in touch if you need more advice, or just want to chat. You can phone, email or send a text.
Phone: 07707 056158.
We'll call you back if we're not available

Junior Courses at Neptune Sailing

During school holiday periods Neptune Sailing runs increasingly popular 5 day (20 hour) courses for young people. We aim to make each course fun and for students to learn at their own pace.

Each course covers the content of the relevant RYA Stages, both practical and theoretical. There are four Stages, ranging from Beginner to Advanced Skills. It is important that parents choose the most appropriate course for their children. We want each individual to feel able to cope with the many challenges met during the week.

Neptune Sailing has many years experience of providing RYA courses for young people. The River Orwell is a challenging environment and safety is the priority for all groups. Those with limited experience of tides should consider repeating Stages to gain more confidence.

RYA Stage Courses run in parallel at the same times during most weeks, so it may be possible to transfer students between groups. Each day lasts for four hours enabling us to choose the best tidal conditions for teaching.
