* Try Our Youth Groups - 2024 *

Come to the first two sessions and try sailing for free!

Rigging for a first sail

Neptune is organising at least one evening youth group next year. Tuesdays will be aimed at beginners, and near beginners and we are hoping to organise an Improvers group on Wednesdays for those with a little more experience.
To encourage young sailors to join us, we have arranged for the first two sessions of our season to be free, so make sure you come along to those sessions. If you don't like sailing there will be nothing to pay.

We need just 6 sailors to run each group and up to 12 places available in each group.

Fees have been kept low, helping family finances at a difficult time, and may be paid in two half-season amounts. Interested in joining a group? Please get in touch in good time. You will need to be in Year 6 or higher (10 years of age) to join the group.

Who are Neptune Sailing?

Rigging lots of dinghies

Neptune Sailing is based on the River Orwell at Woolverstone, near Ipswich. We have a large number of craft, of different types and provide a range of Dinghy Sailing and Powerboat training and assessment. During the season the centre is available to both young people and adults. We aim to provide high quality tuition, based on the RYA National schemes.

Neptune Sailing has been working independently, delivering quality water sports experiences, for the last six seasons. We have charitable status and are registered as a company limited by guarantee.

Our Youth Groups run on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings for Beginners, Improvers and Advanced skills and are open to all young people. They are very popular, so making an early approach regarding joining one of the groups is advisable.

Adult training courses are run mainly during weekends and cover the RYA Sailing Schemes to Level 3 and RYA Powerboat Level 1 and 2, as well as Safety Boat. We are happy to offer courses to groups and individuals at other times.

During the school holiday periods week-long courses are available for young people and these are very popular. The courses offer training from beginner Stage 1 to advanced skills Stage 4.
