The Junior Committee (JC) members are Salterns members normally 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.
Most club session have a member of the JC on duty who will help budding sailors with any questions, take them for rides in Scows, show them how to rig the boats 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. Please do ask!
