Adult Learn to Sail Course

The adult sailing course is a 5 week program held over consecutive Saturday, 3.5 hours each Saturday. The course covers the Start Sailing 1 &2 criteria set by Yachting Australia. Each morning starts with theory and then we get out on the water to practice what we learnt.

 

The sailing sessions are run in 3.7m Vagabond dinghy’s which have 2 sails, we aim to have 2 people in the boat plus an instructor, however in the third week, participants sail without an instructor if appropriate. This a relaxed program primarily catering for new sailors who wants to learn the basics and have fun doing so.

 

The last week of the course gives an opportunity to sail with the SAGS and WAGS sailors, which is social racing for large keel boats, catamarans, trailer sailors etc. This is a great chance to test your experience and help crew on these boats.

 

The next course starts Saturday 14th July 2018 and the cost of the 5 week course is $245. Life jackets, equipment and sunscreen provided.
