Junior sailing – our under 18s give the club its energy and its sense of fun. The weekly summertime Saturday afternoon sessions combine fun sailing with informal coaching for all ages on boat handling and water safety. The sessions end with a race and cadets of all abilities are encouraged to take part. Many members have their own dinghies but the club also has 8 Toppers, 2 Fevas and 3 Wayfarers for members to use. For the more experienced cadets the club runs race coaching sessions throughout the year and we also organise trips to other clubs so that they can gain greater experience of different sailing conditions.
Junior Bourne End Week takes place on the Thursday to Saturday immediately after the adult regatta. JBEW is for the 4 to 18 year old members of the club but visitors and their families are also welcome to take part, space permitting. Besides the 'on the water' fun and racing many families opt for the full experience and choose to camp at the club. The 2012 JBEW will take place on 6-9th June.
