The Brixham Junior Sailing Club was originally formed in 1989 by a group of dedicated volunteer members of Brixham Yacht Club from a very small junior section, it then became a not for profit limited company in 2004 to assist with fund raising.
The club usually accepts children from the age of 10 to 16, but we always consider any applicants. We can accept up to 18 young people in any one year at the moment. We also conduct adult training sessions, but numbers are limited to six newcomers in any one year.
We charge a modest subscription each year, but this is kept to the barest minimum in order to make our club available to as many local children as possible. All subscriptions, donations and funds are used solely for on-going club expenses and maintenance.
We actively encourage both youngsters and adults to remain with the club and help as volunteers, and to continue their training as assistant instructors and to go on to become full RYA dinghy instructors. The club provides regular volunteers of a suitable age with safety boat training, and sponsored first aid qualifications which are all required for any on-going RYA dinghy instructor’s courses.
