Kit List for Junior Training


Buoyancy Aid - must fit snugly - ESSENTIAL. The Club has some that can be loaned to participants.

Lightweight T-shirt or rash vest to wear under the wet suit.

Wet suit - long sleeves and long legs are ESSENTIAL in the early part of the season, until the weather and water warm up. After that shorties are OK.The Club has some shorties that can be purchased or borrowed.

Jumper or fleece.

Trousers or shorts (not jeans).

Splash Top with hood and waterproof trousers if no wet suit available.

Shoes which won't fall off (old trainers or specifically designed dinghy or surfing footwear are fine but NOT Crocs, wellies, flip flops or bare feet).

Hat (Woolly or with a peak) ESSENTIAL to protect from cold or hot weather; also reduces impact of bumps to the head from the boom. (If desired, the club does have a limited supply of helmets and some club boats have foam-covered booms).

Sailing Gloves useful but not essential.

Change of clothes - ESSENTIAL, whatever the weather


Sun Block/lotion when appropriate; we recommend this even when cloudy.

RYA Logbook (available for purchase at YSC).

ALL CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT MUST BE CLEARLY NAMED. The weather can be very cold in the early part of the year, so appropriate clothing is ESSENTIAL for safety reasons. It's always colder on the water and it is better to have too many jumpers than too few. We try to take children on the water whatever the weather (unless it is too windy), so think what you would wear if you were sitting in a boat for an hour in pouring rain! We are regularly left with unnamed kit at the end of training sessions. Unclaimed kit will be put in the Lost Property Bin beside the back door, kept for a few months and then given to charity.

Thank you,
