Tailor-made sailing lessons for children

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
  • An optimistic and determined approach to sailing
  • Enthusiasm and a more focused and motivated attitude
  • Positive awareness of the outdoors
  • New friendships and more relaxed with their peers
  • Fun on the water.

Melvyn’s calm, kind disposition makes him superb at teaching children. My son’s confidence and ability has improved beyond measure after one day with Melvyn.
