Juniors & Cadets

The aim of the Junior and Cadet fleets is to have fun on the water. Ullswater Yacht Club provides an excellent environment to develop young sailors.

Junior (Under 18s)

The transition between cadet to adult racing is bridged at Ullswater Yacht Club with a Saturday afternoon Tempest & Dinghy series, held on the same day as the Cadet races. The Saturday T&D series is an all class dinghy handicap series, allowing a varied choice of dinghies to accommodate the diversity of the Junior fleet.

Cadet (Under 15s)

The Cadet fleet is open to under fifteens sailing Toppers, with the emphasis on fun and the enjoyment of sailing.

Cadet Fun

Through out the sailing season fun based sailing activities run by different members, offer safe and supervised sailing adventures. Previous fantastic events have included on the water treasures hunts, relay races, climbing the mast and five-a-side football.

Sail Camp

The annual Sal Camp is run entirely by volunteers and offers five days of sailing under the instruction of qualified RYA instructors and club racing coaches, while staying on the club grounds in tents. Sail Camp is open to youngsters aged 8 to 14, who have access to either a Topper or an Optimist.
