About

Youth Sailing @ Felixstowe Ferry is a registered charity (no. 1088678) whose aim is to teach young people between the ages of 10 and 18 to sail dinghies in an enjoyable, challenging and yet safe environment, and at a cost which is accessible to everyone. We operate at Felixstowe Ferry Sailing Club.

The main aim of our sessions is to enjoy ourselves on the water, and for students to learn to sail in a variety of dinghies from Wayfarers and Picos for the beginners, to Fevas, Lasers, 2000s, Buzzes and Dart 16 catamarans for our more experienced groups. Although not essential all our students are encouraged to take formal RYA qualifications, and we cover the full syllabus from Level 1 through to Racing, Seamanship and even Instructor qualifications. For our helpers we offer sailing, powerboat and first-aid training. We try to incorporate fun events and variety in our sailing programme, so as well as the coaching sessions we race, play games on the water, and sail up the river for our annual BBQ. The season ends in early November with our special lunch and awards ceremony, where we celebrate the season’s achievements.
