Haversham Sailing Club's Youth and Buccaneer groups are open to all Club members under 19. All those under 16 (Buccaneers) should be accompanied by a parent/carer when joining in with any Buccaneer's activities. Whilst we do not specify a lower age limit, any child who attends must be able to swim, feel confident in and around water and must be capable of listening to and working to instructions. In reality, five 5 years old is a good starting point, but there will always be exceptions!
During the main sailing season, Buccaneers’s sessions are generally held once a month on a Saturday afternoon, mostly coinciding with family sailing days. The main aim of these sessions is to allow youngsters to enjoy and feel confident on the water. Youth racing series are every Friday evening as well. Youth and Buccaneer activities are not only limited to the ‘warmer’ months. During the remainder of the year they have their own get togethers including a Halloween party, Christmas party and swimming sessions where we hire time at a local pool.
The highlight of their year is the annual presentation night, held in the clubhouse, where trophies and certificates are given for those taking part on Saturdays, and for those who race on Fridays.
Saturday dates, 2018 can be here but don't forget to look at the club's main events calendar for othere activities and of course presentation night.
Very many thanks to Chris Hughes for all his hard work with the Buccaneers section over recent years, please watch this space for announcements regarding our exciting new programme for 2018.
