Specialising in building confidence and self-esteem through sailing experiences and learning new skills.
Our sailing courses are designed to have a positive effect on children’s self-belief and confidence. Focusing on a ‘can do’ approach to learning sailing skills, Melvyn has developed a successful way of encouraging children to naturally feel better about themselves and their abilities.
His techniques work through positive communication and a sense of humour. Children don’t have to ‘try’ to feel good at sailing, or ‘remember’ to believe in themselves; they simply find themselves feeling these things easily and automatically. Sailing is well known to enhance children’s life skills, providing self-esteem, social skills and hands-on skill based confidence. “Melvyn, you have managed to turn a very reluctant and scared 9 year old boy into a happy and confident sailor! You are a fantastic coach and Thomas will thank you for the many happy sailing years he has ahead of him! A huge thank you.”
At Melvyn Cooper Sailing we offer unique, tailored-made programmes for one-to-one sailing lessons. What to expect from a series of sailing lessons:
- Increased confidence and self-esteem
