It is NOT a beginners training week and all sailors must be competent to complete a triangular course in most conditions and should be familiar with the boat they are sailing.

All sailors must hold a minimum RYA Level 2 standard or equivalent. Evidence of competence (log books, certificates, racing results) may be required.

The organisers have the right to refuse an application if in their opinion the sailor is not competent to sail the boat they have entered irrespective of any sailing awards held.

Club Boats

The club boats (Optimists, Toppers and Gulls) are available for use; prior booking is necessary.

Optimists – The participant must hold and be able to sail to IOCA stage 2  and the advice of the Optimist sail training instructor and the Junior Week organiser should be sought if in doubt.

Toppers – The participant must hold and be able to sail to RYA Junior Level 3.

Gulls – The participant must hold and be able to sail to RYA Junior Level 2.

Final decision will rest with the organisers.

Where a club boat is used it is the sailors/parents responsibility to ensure any damage or defect  is reported to the organisers as soon as any such damage or defect is discovered.

During the week the organisers may decide to use the club Fevas.


All boats should be rigged and prepared for the published start time.

All sailors are expected to be properly equipped for the conditions with adequate wetsuits or dry-suits, personal buoyancy and suitable footwear.

Where participants provide their own boats they are to ensure the boat is adequately maintained and sea worthy. Any boat deemed unsuitable will not be allowed onto the water. Please check before the week!!

Anyone without a change of clothes will not be permitted to go afloat.

The organisers/coaches reserve the right to withdraw any sailors deemed insufficiently prepared for the conditions.


All sailors are expected to bring a packed lunch each day. Hot and cold drinks will be provided free of charge.


It is the responsibility of the parent of the sailor to advise the organisers/coaches of any medical condition that could affect the sailor's performance or ability to participate. Completion of Frampton on Severn Junior Week Confidential Activity Consent Form, which will be forwarded to you by email on submission of the online registration form, is a requirement.


All parents/carers are required to carry out a minimum of 2 duties during the week (where possible) and ensure their child has the right equipment, their boat prepared for sailing each morning and put away each evening.

There will be a register of participants which parents/carers will be required to sign on arrival and on departure. If you have arranged for someone else to drop off or collect your child please ensure that they are aware of the requirement to sign the register on your behalf.

Please ensure that you will be there on time to pick up your child.

If your child's behaviour is not acceptable please be aware your child will not be allowed to participate in the rest of the week.


For those wishing to camp during the week please be advised that there will be NO supervision available after 5pm. Anyone under 16 years of age who is camping must be supervised on site by a parent/carer.
