We have a huge number of youth and junior members at Papercourt. Jeremy Riley is the youth representative on the committee and he represents our views and takes ideas from the young members to the committee.
Papercourt Sailing Club is a very active family club and there is loads of training geared towards us, in Optimists from about age eight to Toppers, Fevas, Laser 4.7s and Laser Radials. We also have an active group of teenagers who sail other boats, in particular RS200s and Lasers.
Most of the social events are attended by members of all ages and we always have a good time. At the fireworks there are games particularly for the juniors and at the BBQ in the summer. If you’re nervous about not knowing anyone then get in touch with Jeremy beforehand and he’ll try to make sure that you are introduced to friendly people your age as soon as you arrive.
Lots of youth members go out and about on the open meeting circuit and to national championships, and it is great to have PSC friends around you when you visit other clubs. So why not come sailing at PSC, come to some of our social events and make some new friends!
