Sailing Instructions:
This two day camp is aimed at Kids and teens who are already blasting around on boards of around 100ltrs and below on all points of sails.

Sam and Jamie will split the group according to ability but both groups will have the same overall aim. To dramatically push and improve these young sailors in a coastal environment over the weekend and have loads of fun.

The groups will be looking at a range of things from sailing on the sea more confidently, carving gybes, duck gybes and jumping. To popping for freestyle moves forwards and all modern freestyle manoeuvres.

With or without wind this camp is aimed at improving these young ripper’s all round waterman ship and so will be looking at knowledge, skills and etiquette within the coastal environment.

Surf, Paddlesurfing and Wind supping are all tools that the camp will make use depending on what the conditions are most appropriate for.

Sailors will need the following:
1. Windsurfing equipment appropriate for the conditions i.e.: a board around 100 ltrs or less appropriate for the conditions found at the coast. Larger boards will be available as part of the camp and small freestyle and wave boards are available for hire through X-train.
2. Warm Wetsuit
3. Plenty of warm and waterproof clothing.
4. Snacks, water, food and lunch.
5. Trainers for warm ups..
