After the success of 2018's event, we are holding a four day summer course for youngsters. It will from from 10am till 3 pm each day from Tuesday August 13 to Friday August 16 and the age range will be from eight to 18.
Most of the action will be on the water with the accent on fun. Teenage sailors will be leading activities under the supervision of a qualified instructor.
Along the way, our participants will be learning to sail (or improving technique for those who already can handle a boat). There will also be land-based activities, quite a few with a nautical theme.
The event is for club members - but youngsters can join for just £21.50 and that covers membership until November. There is a one-off fee of £20 for the Fun Sail to cover upkeep of club equipment and other costs of running the event.
There will be tea, coffee, water and cordial drinks for participants. They will need to bring their own lunches.
The youngsters will join in rigging boats and putting them away at the end of each day.
Numbers are limited so early booking is advised.
The protection of the personal data of our members and visitors is duty that Etherow Country Park Sailing Club accepts willingly.
We do all we can to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation that was brought into effect in the spring of 2018.

Thank you for visiting the website of the Etherow Country Park Sailing Club, the only sailing club in Stockport. Feel free to browse our site and see what we have to offer.
Etherow is a friendly club (when racing we experience good-natured rivalry!) and we welcome everyone: from those who may never have put their foot in a dinghy before, to Olympic team coach. Membership is inexpensive and we have some club boats that can be used, for a nominal charge, during the early stages. There are plenty of boats for sale within the club and elsewhere for very little money.
