Frequently asked questions

What is the After School Club?

This is a course of 5 sessions run over a 5 week period. It is to get local children on the water and keep them there. There is no profit in this course and the fees pay for only the instructor and boat fuel costs and nothing more. The sessions are slightly shorter and the groups are a bit bigger than the other courses. We have had many great sailors come out of these clubs and many assistant instructors.

When are these courses run?

These course start at 4.30pm sharp and finish at 7pm. There are 3 lots of 5 week courses run throughout the year, April/May, June/July and Sept/Oct. All in term time. Pre-booking is essential.

What happens if it is really windy?

During the 5 week course on the After School Club, we allow for 1 of these sessions to cover essential other aspects of the syllabus ashore. If we then encounter another week with adverse conditions, we will cancel this and tag another session on the end of the 5 week block. We will always let you know if the session is not going ahead.

If it rains will it still be on?

Yes, we still go sailing in the rain. Most of the time you are going to get wet anyway! We provide all wetsuits for the smaller wet boats and waterproofs for the larger, drier boats to keep you as comfortable as possible. We also provide all the safety equipment.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the clothing and equipment you will need. If you are going in a smaller boat then you will get wet. Here at Mylor Sailing School we have plenty of wetsuits for all ages and sizes. If you are going in a dryer boat then we will provide waterproof jackets and trousers to go over your clothing. The only thing we do not provide is footwear so you will need to bring something that you don’t mind getting wet, like wetsuit shoes or trainers. If you are wearing a wetsuit you will also need to bring your bathing suit for underneath this and a towel. This will all be explained in your booking confirmation once you have confirmed your booking.

Do I have to capsize?

Here at Mylor Sailing School we will never make anybody do anything that they would not like to do. For the more elementary stages of sailing you need to understand what to do in the event of a capsize and this will be talked through/demonstrated when you are booking onto the RYA courses. Normally once you have had a practical experience of a capsize in a controlled environment then any fears are normally alleviated.

How many people in a group?

For Sailing, depending on the level of experience of the sailor will determine how many we are able to have in a group due to the Royal Yachting Associations strict regulations. We are generally allowed to have 6 people to 1 instructor for the first few levels of the RYA courses. The RYA state that for their courses, depending on the experience of the sailors ratios may vary between 6:1 or 9:1.
