Junior Sailing

Burnham has a history of National, European, World and Olympic Champions who learned their trade on the waters of the Crouch.

The River Crouch can be a dangerous place for which reason it is essential that children who want to sail learn to do so from one of the expert sources that we are so lucky to have in Burnham on Crouch.

Burnham Sailing Club has a large junior section with sailing every Friday evening from April to September. 

Friday night offer experiences from riding in the safety boats, learning the basic or learning the finer points of racing from experts.

Burnham sailing Club organises a Junior Regatta in September where they not only race but joy fun events like crabbing.

Royal Corinthian Yacht Club also have a large Junior Section ( 8 to 18 yrs) who are called 'The Otters'.

The Otters have been providing skills to young people on the Crouch since 1930.

Otter week which is held annually in July provides a week of Junior Sailing that draws young people from the whole of the UK.

The Royal Burnham Yacht Club also have a cadet section who provide regular sailing on the Crouch.

They hold a sailing week in August for Juniors.
