Junior & Youth Courses


Watersports are a good way to improve fitness, strength and coordination; they also offer a sporting alternative to children who are not keen on ball games or competitive sports. They’re confidence builders too, with children working their way through different skills levels. We supply all the equipment from wetsuits and buoyancy aids to boats, while our location makes us easy to reach from Edinburgh and Fife. The children just need to bring some enthusiasm and a willingness to get wet!

Are you in the Scouts or Girl Guides? Remember we have lots of exciting activities for you to get involved in to help you gain a number of badges and awards, for example learning a new sport, improving fitness and taking part in a number of water sports activities.

Our sailing and powerboating courses follow the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) National Sailing Scheme, while for paddlesports we are approved by the Scottish Canoe Association (our regional branch of British Canoeing) and British Stand-up Paddleboard Association.

For general information about how Port Edgar Watersports looks after children on our courses, please read our Note for Parents.
