What to Bring

We’re asking that children arrive in their wetsuit ready to participate in the activity if they can. Nevertheless, the following items are required:

  • Change of clothes and shower gear – in case they get very cold
  • Footwear that you don’t mind if they get wet, old runners would be ideal
  • Rain jacket – even for when it’s not raining, it will keep a lot of the wind off
  • Woolly hat for cooler days
  • Wetsuit – either your child’s own one or you can borrow one from us for the duration of the term, bringing it home each day.

Wetsuit Rental – Included

Collection of the wetsuit can take place in the week preceding the start of the first date, including the Saturday of the weekend before. We’ll be open 9am-5pm each day, Monday-Saturday.

  • star ratingCompetent Crew Course - Excellent Instructor - Having done a few courses with the INSS over the summer of 2023, and some sailing on the Mediterranean, doing the Competent Crew course with others who were doing the Day Skipper course at the same time was the highlight of my time learning how to sail. The reason it was the highlight was largely due to the course instructor Shona O'Dowd (I made certain to get her full name before leaving to give her the credit she deserved). Huge knowledge and experience mixed with a great attitude, with friendliness, patience and approachability making Shona stand out and make each day of the course something to look forward to regardless of weather or experience level. Shona guided practical use of all facets of sailing knowledge excellently and never micromanaged or tried to exert too much control, thereby never limiting the learning that can take place for students.

    This teaching style is difficult to find, having seen a variety of instructors and their styles, in different countries and even within the INSS, and so you will be very lucky if you get Shona on your boat when it comes your turn to learn the ropes (literally). All in all, the Competent Crew course was very enjoyable, and I just wanted to give credit where it was due.
