Children sailing school
for kids and juniors from 8 to 15 years old
Great sports for kids
Spending a lot of time in the fresh air, we develop the physical, emotional, intellectual abilities and senses of the child. When sailing, child becomes more patient, stronger and more determined. He learns to listen and feel the wind and respond quickly to changes around him. Do you know how aerodynamic principles work by interacting with the sail, the wind and the centre of gravity?
We focus on both physical training and sailing theory, as well as having fun and explore sailing history, going to museums and meeting with great personalities in sailing. You can read more and see pictures in our blog here (in latvian).
In summer you can also join our separate sports team, where we train kids who want to move to professional sailing sport.
How do we do it?
Our school operates all year round. Trainings take place in Riga, Kipsala, in City Yacht Club. We welcome all kids 8-15 years old.
In winter and late autumn:
Trainings 2-3 times per week. We train dexterity and balance, indoor rock climbing, skating, swimming, diving and rescue exercises in the pool, as well as preparing theoretical sailing lessons where we explain how the wind works and what are race rules.
We organize sailing campus (clinic) in warm waters like Tenerife where kids can sail and swim a whole week or more.
Trainings 4 times per week. Sailing on water, races and regattas. City Yacht Club every year organises “Riga Cup” for Optimist sailors.
