Children's Courses

At DOSC we offer four stages within the RYA Youth Sailing (12)


  • TASTER SESSION ~ (one day course) This is aimed at six and seven year olds allowing time on the water to decide whether sailing is something they are interested in.
  • STAGE ONE~(two day course) Basic sailing includes paddling, helming, reaching, tacking, parts of the boat
  • STAGE TWO~ (two day course)  Includes Sailing Upwind, Speed Control, Parts of the Sail, Rules of the Road)
  • STAGE THREE*~ Advanced (eg Rig Independently, Sail Theory, Gybing, Man Overboard Recovery)


The courses take place either as weekly sessions, whereby you can sign up for the term, or on weekends & school holidays and run from 10am till 4pm

* Students with Sailing Experience outside the RYA Scheme can be taken for an assessment and be placed in an appropriate group.
