My dad would like to organise some games for junior sailors at our club and I was wondering what games you found interesting on your sailing boat.

Do relay races with frisbee's...Do a lap, throw frisbee from 25 yards from the beach, your team catches it and goes. If the frisbee goes in the water you have to swim to get it, so a good throw will really earn you some time.

racing with lemans starts!! meaning you start on the beach and run to your boat and launch it. mixes things up


Mosquito 1750 Bonnie-GLYC / Peninsula

The plan was simple.... Like my brother in law Phil, except this plan just might work!

Games on sailing boats are very dangerous for unexperienced sailor. But some junior
sailor are very intelligent and gained experience very early. They can enjoy the
games on any kind of sailing boats.
