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!
