Youth Adventure Week

5 days

Age 14+

This a great multi activity week providing a flavour of watersports.

Students will generally spend at least one day on dinghy sailing ,windsurfing and kayaking with the option to spend more time on their favourite activity towards the end of the week.

Where appropriate, RYA certificates can be awarded but generally require two days on the same activity to meet the syllabus requirements. Weather permitting, a trip away from the centre forms part this course which provides a good all-round introduction to watersports in a fun packed environment.

Equipment and Kit Information

Youth Adventure Week - Kit Info

There is a wide range of dinghy sailing equipment at the Centre.

In our single handed fleet (one sailor/boat) we use the Laser Picos. These are super boats for beginners or advanced sailors as they provide progression in sailing skills and also encourage application of racing techniques. The sail can be reefed to suit the wind conditions and they are suitable for both junior and youth modules.

Our main group teaching boats where we generally have 1 instructor to 3 persons (depending on age and size) are the Laser Stratus and the RS Bahia’s. These are spacious boats with good stability and can be sailed with main and jib or for more advanced levels with the addition of the spinnaker. The boats can also be used for trapezing.

Also in our fleet we have the Dart 16’s. This is a catamaran and great fun to sail. Children can sail it with 3 – 4 onboard and older youth sailors would sail it 2 up. These boats are good for learning boat handling skills and providing the experience of acceleration through the power of sail and wind.

The boats you sail at Cumbrae will be selected by the instructors to suit the objectives of your course or tailored activity.

Getting wet is unavoidable so we will make sure you have the correct gear. A wetsuit, wetsuit boots, buoyancy aid and spray top is available for your use and can be dried overnight ready for the next day’s action. In addition we would request you bring garments such as swim wear, woolly hat and warm socks. Hot showers are available in the changing areas and accommodation areas so bring a spare towel.
