Serious Social Fun

Sabots are an excellent dinghy for all kids to learn to sail and continue to the highest level of racing. Many sailing clubs offer learn to sail programs in Sabots. Many kids that have learnt to sail in a Sabot have gone on to become Olympic Champions. The Sabot is an ideal training boat typically with kids starting as early as 6/7 years old as a crew, with an older skipper, sailing 2 up in the Sabot. This is social and develops important team work skills and importantly younger kids have a companion to share their experiences. In the early days, it is proven that sailing 2 up has the best results for learning to sail.

 

“80% of what I learnt in sailing was in a Sabot.”
