Who are the Junior Committee in 2018?
The Junior Committee (JC) members are full members aged 12 (year 8) and over who have volunteered to take responsibility for running the Club. This is a big commitment but an important one. Children learn best when copying other sailors so these committee members are the best people to help young skippers to learn and enjoy sailing.
Each club session has a junior committee member on duty who will help budding sailors with any questions and take them for joy rides in Scows or help them learn to sail other boats. Most of the Junior Committee members learned to sail at Salterns themselves and have been members since they were 6 or 7 or even came here as babies with their older siblings so know just what a child will need to help them progress. Many of the Junior Committee take their sailing outside Salterns and participate in local and national events. Between them they have enormous talent and a wealth of information. They are very willing to help with everything from showing you how to rig the boat to demonstrating tacking on the dry tacker. Please do ask.

Anyone wishing to join the Junior Committee should speak to one of the Junior Committee first to find out what it is about and then contact the Junior Liaison Officer to ask for a form to fill in. This needs to be returned by end of October each year. There is a limit to the number who can be on the JC and the minimum age is normally 12 (year 8).
