Cadet Sailing

RNCYC and Lomond School are again working together to deliver Cadet sailing throughout the sailing season from April to October. This year we have introduced some more advanced groups to support the ongoing development of our younger members.

Evening Sessions - 2019

Summer term cadet sessions are open for 8 to 16 year-olds and are based at Rhu Marina. They run on Thursday evenings from 25th April – 13th June (inclusive) as two sessions:

  • 16:00-18:30 – Learn to Sail (Working on RYA Stages 1-4)

  • 18:00-20:30 – Specialised Sailing (Race Training and Seamanship skills)


Due to the range of groups, we can accommodate both beginners and more advanced sailors, but it is important that sailing experience is indicated on the consent form to enable us to allocate sailors to an appropriate group. Places in each group are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.


Requirements: Wetsuit, wetsuit boots/trainers (to get wet), rash-vest/thermal top, cagoule, (waterproof jacket), gloves, hat. A buoyancy aid is also required but can be provided if necessary.

Cost: £90

All participants must be either a cadet member of RNCYC (£25) or a member of Lomond School Sailing Club.

Participants should have the relevant logbook for their course, these can be purchased from the RNCYC Office for £6.99.

We plan to run RYA stage 1-4 courses in the Summer holidays.  Please email if you are interested.
