John Colet School Sailing club enrolment form

John Colet School Sailing Squad

The JCS Sailing Squad has been running for over 20 years and meets at the Balmoral Sailing Club on Saturday mornings during Terms 4 and 1.  We have a small fleet of Lasers and Mirrors.  Initially, children sail with an experienced skipper and learn the rudiments of crewing and skippering the boats.  Once they have gained sufficient experience and knowledge, they can take charge of their own boat.  The aim of the Squad is to provide the children with the opportunity to enjoy ‘messing around in boats’ and to prepare them to participate in the Balmoral Sailing Club’s afternoon races during their final year or after they have left John Colet.  In the past, several students and ex-students have participated in the Mirror Nationals which were held at Balmoral.

The session starts at 8.30am.  Parents and children rig the boats, sail for between 1 and 1.5 hours and then de-rig the boats and return them to the boatshed.  They also learn some basic terminology, knot tying, etc.  The morning is fun and relatively informal. For those parents not keen on actually sailing there is still a very enjoyable morning on the beach.

The charge for participation is $140 per Term, payable with application or latest in the first week of term. All boats, life jackets and equipment are provided.

The Squad is run by a group of parents and friends who give their time to the club for free.  We are always happy to hear from any new parents with sailing experience or who would like to learn.    It is expected that all families who enroll for sailing will help with rigging and de-rigging the boats and with managing the children on days when they are at the club.

Membership is open to all children in classes 3, 4, 5 & 6.  In the event that the club is over-subscribed, preference is given to older children and previous members.  To enroll, please complete the form below and return it to the School Office or email it to Duncan MacLennan. You can contact school parent Duncan MacLennan on on 0404 832 093 for further information if required.
