WELCOME TO THE PARKSTONE YACHT CLUB AB FLEET INTRODUCE YOUR CHILDREN TO THE JOY OF SAILING IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

Parkstone AB Fleet

The AB Fleet is an ideal way to begin sailing. The Fleet is all about having fun and learning the basic skills and racing rules. There are regular Friday night training sessions where the old sailors can share boats with the younger members. There are also fun games that they play which involve catching ducks, learning secure knots to tie on the back of the boats and gybing to the sound of a whistle!!!

 

The starter fleet is called, CAP (Child and Parent) which is a gentle introduction using inflatable toys to sail round. When the children are ready to progress they can move onto Bronze fleet. The children at this point can sail solo, or it can continue to be sailed as a double hander with a friend. In bronze fleet the children get lots of help and encouragement from parent volunteers on the water. The next step is Silver Fleet when the children are really confident to be on the water and are keen to learn about racing. Finally, the children can go to Gold Fleet.  This is for single handed sailors that really want to concentrate on race technique!
