About Splash Week

The JC Week starts on Saturday 24th August with the JC's competing in J70's for the Under 21 Cup on the Sunday. The Splashers join the fun on Sunday 25th August with a registration and family fun day before a big 5 days of sailing and activities.

All ages, from Grandparents down to the 4 year olds, join in to ensure that through a week's fun on the water the children all gain more confidence and ability. All children do need to be accompanied by a responsible adult who is happy to take part.

It is a busy, hectic, colourful, fun week with lots of adventures all based around the Royal Southern Yacht Club and the surrounding waters of the Hamble River. Youth week and our monthly youth sailing events are open to children and young people (age 4-18) of Members and guests of Members.


All participants in the Junior Cadet or Splash events must for insurance purposes be members of the club. Participants who are Family Members of the Club are already covered.

Adults: A week's temporary Membership is available for adults at a cost of £200.00 (or if grandparents are members, £50/adult and £20/child) and the completion of the Temporary Member Form downloadable below. Please note that if you later decide to become a full club member, this Temporary Membership fee will be deducted from your subscription.


Splash Oppies

The best way for a child to learn to sail is to be in command of an Optimist sailing dinghy.

New Splashers - We have a few RSrnYC Oppies available for Splash week. The use of these Club boats are available for new Splashers to use whilst deciding if sailing is for them. We anticipate demand for the rental Oppies to be high. If you would be interested in your child having one of these boats we will do our best to arrange this but they may need to share, please register your interest on the application form. There will be a charge of £50.00 per child per week for a place/share in/of one of these Oppies.

Repeat Splashers - Children who have attended one or more Splash Weeks would be expected to provide their own boats. Children cannot sail in Minnows group or above unless they have their own boat. We do find that children learn better if they have their own boat, while for complete beginners it is fun to share a boat. If you are looking for a second hand optimist for your child, then a good place to start is the Oppie home page on or ask other parents at Splash meetings.

Junior Cadets

JC's sail Feva's, Lasers and J70's during the week. As with Splash, any JC who turns up without a boat of their own will be expected to pay the £50 boat rental charge to contribute to the hire costs.
