Thanks for the replies
They are currently comfortable in the water while wearing life jackets in pools and have been on boats many times. However I remember when going a camp as a child (probably around 8 years old), to even be allowed near the boats you were required to pass to swimming test.
I find it really surprising that sailing clubs will teach children who can't pass a swimming test how to sail.
