The junior/youth racing takes place along side the main club racing, the juniors get their own start. It’s a great place to learn and progress. Alongside this the juniors get their own club trophy day & ‘Junior Sailor Of The Year’ award


Away from the club, the juniors like to reward themselves with social events both at the club and away.



A lot of our junior travel locally to other clubs to compete in the North-West Junior Travellers events.

I started sailing when I was seven years old. When I first started I was nervous and a bit worried. I didn’t know if I was going to like it, but I really enjoyed it.

I went out for my very first session for level one run by Mike Seger and the OnBoard team and I made a few friends. On the first day we went out and had some fun but also learnt lots. 

I was a bit unsure what to do at the beginning, then I quickly gained confidence, so I started to compete with the adults and juniors in races. I now race every Wednesday and Sunday as well as practicing and having a laugh on a Saturday. 

I love sailing because I’m in control of everything such as going fast, hiking out and getting around the course, competing against people and most importantly because it’s fun.

Now I’m nine, I compete against other juniors in competitions at other clubs in the North West.

I think you should start sailing because it’s amazing and you make lots of new friends.
