Rockley is probably best known for the holidays and courses that we provide for youngsters. Our residential option is available for youngsters aged from 10-17 years. This full board option is particularly popular as their experience with us is as much about their time off the water as it is on the water.

Cost is £40.00 per night for full board accommodation including food and can be booked with any of our courses.

5 day residential

Book 2 of our 2 day modules and our Friday Fun day to create a 5 day course for just £500. Our Friday Fun day is a great opportunity to have a go at any of our other activities including SUP'ing, kayaking or going for a blast on a catamaran.

Our fully supervised purpose-built lodge is only a short walk from the sailing centre and each en-suite room sleeps between four and six people. Girls and boys are accommodated separately and, as far as possible, those of similar age are grouped to share a room. Let us know if you are coming with a friend/s.

We also have a full programme of things to do after the sailing day is over from beach games to a bbq evening. Also included in the residential price is a trip to the local indoor water flume park – so swimming things and lots of energy are essential!

The Dorset School Games - a parent’s perspective! >

A few days ago I wrote an article about the Can Do festival at Poole Park Lake, organised and hosted by Rockley Watersports.  On Thursday I was at the Dorset School Games for Primary school pupils in a work capacity but I am writing this piece through the eyes of a parent!
