Youth Sailing Section
Dinghy Captain Ian Carswell
The TBC dinghy section tends to be part and parcel of the Youth section and sails throughout the year, water allowing, with safety boat cover. If you are interested make contact – we can help to get you afloat and Yes! even in the winter we do have great fun!
The TBC Youth Squad is open to any member, or potential member, from the age of 8 years (risings 7’s can be taken) to 18 years.
The Teifi Boating Club has a Child Protection Policy and our designated Child Protection Officer is Eve O’Neil and her photograph and details of how to contact her are on the main club notice board.
The Youth Section has a Youth Representative on the TBC Management Committee.
We sail all throughout the year, most weekends, when the tide allows.
The Club owns:
5 Optimist Dinghies, 5 Topper Dinghies and 2 Laser Picos and provides Buoyancy aids, most sizes of wet suits and spray tops if necessary.
We offer supervised sailing, with tuition and safety boat cover; initially within the safety of the estuary and in the bay once experienced, and we welcome anyone with an interest in sailing from beginners with nothing more than enthusiasm to experienced helms with their own boats.
During the season we compete in local regattas and the West Wales Youth Racing Circuit and have members competing farther a field including National Championships. One member traveled to Lake Garda in Italy for the Topper Worlds.
The Youth Squad has its own identity within the club and enjoys the social activities with or without parents.
