About Cockles Club
The Sea View Yacht Club believes its younger members really are the future of the Club. With this in mind, the Cockles Club was set up 20 years ago by the Wakefield family, to provide four days of activities for children or grandchildren of members before they are old enough to get out on the water and go sailing. The week has grown year-on-year, and we now expect upwards of 130 children to join in the fun.
The children known as Cockles provide the focus of the week, alongside their parents and grandparents. Its an opportunity to make and sustain Seaview friendships that will last a lifetime. Activities include swimming, rowing, paddle-boarding, riding, football, tennis, arts & crafts, yoga, plus a group beach sports day all ending with a well-deserved party for the grown-ups at the Club!

- Cockles will be placed in groups based on age but if you have children that you need to be in groups together (e.g. siblings or cousins) then please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
Please complete and return the booking form the SVYC website here. This is a new booking system this year for all SVYC courses there is a helpful pdf available which helps you navigate the form. We require as many helpers as possible and welcome anybody wishing to participate in any way be it their time during the week, or the lending of equipment and gardens/ space or anything else which you think could be useful. Do please feel free to email us the Cockles team. We are canvassing interest in a possible drop-off session for those that did Cockles in 2021 for the last time and 8 years old on July 1, 2022 and who have younger siblings still doing Cockles. We will do our best to organise this with more details to follow nearer the timeEmma Lawrence & Johnny Ashenhurst
