Youth Squad

Most children love the water, and at Dovestone Sailing Club they learn a few skills, play, make friends and generally have fun. The youth group meets on Friday evenings in spring and summer for skills development activities alongside time for unstructured sailing fun. This is included in the club membership fee. It is not a ‘drop and go’ activity – parents are expected to stay on-site at all times and assist with changing and boat rigging alongside our more experienced sailors.

In 2024 we have entered for the revived Southport 24 hour race organised by West Lancs Yacht Club.

Youth Training

Our Friday evening sessions are practice sessions rather than a formal training course. Young members who have not sailed before are encouraged to take the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme courses.

Youth Training

Lots of fun on the water thanks to our fantastic youth training team.


We are a sailing club, affiliated to the RYA, that welcomes families and individuals new to sailing or experienced. We provide training and coaching for adults and young people, to develop skills towards taking part in the club racing programme and beyond.
