Specialty Sailing Courses - Family Courses

Overview

Part of Sunsail’s mission in life to get as many people out on the water as possible, therefore Family Sailing Courses are very high on our agenda. 

Sunsail actively promotes and encourages families to develop their sailing skills together and offers a wide range of courses designed to facilitate this.

Children between the ages of 8 and 18 can join their parents on Sunsail One Day taster, RYA Start Yachting and RYA 5 Day Competent Crew Courses at Port Solent and in the Canaries, while 16 to 18 year olds can join any of Sunsail’s courses worldwide, as long as they are accompanied by an adult, and can qualify up to Day Skipper level.

Children under 13 must bring their own lifejackets and there is a 12% discount for children under 12.

Family sailing courses are run all year round, but half terms and school holidays tend to book up early.

  • Learn a new sport
  • Build teamwork and communications skills
  • Great for family bonding!
  • Ideal preparation for a sailing holiday abroad
