Youth sailing academy
Sunsail’s Youth Sailing Academy weeks are as popular with parents as they are with the teenagers themselves. Scheduled to coincide with school holidays and half terms, Sunsail’s Youth Sailing Academy weeks are a great mix of sailing instruction and other, fun activities designed to keep teenagers busy and entertained.
Youth Sailing Academy weeks are all-inclusive of food and soft drinks and are suitable for teenagers aged between 13 and 17. Non-sailing activities include canoeing, on shore games and beach barbecues. Over the course of the week, students can work towards their Duke of Edinburgh award.
Accommodation is on board for the duration of the course and is mixed, with boys and girls in separate cabins. Sunsail endeavours to allocate boats by age range, where possible.
All Sunsail’s instructors are RYA qualified, DBS enhanced and are well used to dealing with teenagers.
