Youth Sailing

Schools PictureThe club is committed to promoting youth sailing. We have a range of club boats available for hire by members making sailing accessible to as wide a range of families as possible. When possible we work with other clubs and organisations in the region to promote wider opportunities for sailing. Details of any opportunities we are currently aware of are below.

Sailing Opportunities at DSC

Over the winter we will run as many informal coaching sessions as we can, keep an eye on the events section.

In the spring and autumn we run Sunday training courses for members of all ability levels, details can be found on our training page. Part of this programme is our youth race group and many of the participants in this join in our club races all year round. We often run informal coaching sessions on Sunday mornings to help young people build their confidence and we encourage participants to then join in the main race. Check the calendar to see what is happening at the moment.

Sailing Opportunities beyond DSC


NSSA Regatta 2018

We will again be working with other local organisations to support a team to represent Oxfordshire at the National Schools Sailing Association national regatta which this year will be from 22nd July to the 27th July at Datchet. We aim to make the team as inclusive as possible and will again be running a tryout day at Farmoor so that we can asses if young sailors are at a level where they are going to enjoy the event. The tryouts this year will be on the 28th April for details click here. Those invited to be part of the team will also be invited to a training weekend at Farmoor. More information will be posted on the Oxfordshire Youth Sailing Website as it becomes available.
