Sailing is now offered to all pupils; starting at the novice stage to advanced competitive racing.
In partnership with Sea View Yacht Club, which is a RYA training centre, the school has an impressive fleet of RS Visions, RS Fevas, Picos and Toppers together with a new RIB.
Pupils can enjoy the sport at a novice level at which they will be trained through the RYA Dinghy Coaching Scheme to develop their skills and gain qualifications. Selection for year group squads allows them to compete against other schools at team racing. Our best sailors are selected to represent the school at national sailing events.
The Isle of Wight is famous for sailing and with Cowes, the International Home of Sailing on our doorstep we have many talented sailors in the school, representing the Island, County and Country in local and international sailing competitions. We are currently broadening our sailing provision to ensure all our pupils have a chance to experience this sport. Our highly qualified coaching and sailing staff seek to provide as wide a range of sailing opportunities as possible for all our pupils at whatever level of competence.
