Sail Training

Under the latest COVID-19 restrictions, community sports are permitted activities, but subject to strict compliance with COVID SAFE requirements. Please familiarise yourself with these requirements before attending learn to sail activities.

Families Learn to Sail

Learn to sail sessions are conducted on most Sunday mornings during the sailing season, beginning early in September and continuing through until April.  Students meeting at 09:00 in front of the club.

Our Schedule of Events for the 2020-21 season can be viewed and downloaded here.

Children and adults are all welcome. It’s a great way for families to learn together!!

The sessions include basic instruction for beginners and short course racing and instruction for the more experienced.


Adults Learn to Sail

We also offer one on one or small group instruction for adults with some of our experienced sailors (including female instructors for any women who prefer to learn with other women).  This can be arranged for Saturdays and Sunday mornings and Sunday at 15:00, or at any mutually convenient time – using your boat or our club boats.

Club Boats

We have a number of different boat types that are available for learning, if you don’t have your own boat. These include Minnows, Vagabonds, Lasers, O’pen Bics, Pacers and Sailboards.

Other Skills

Race Management instruction and mentoring is conducted for members who are rostered for boat duty or for any other members wishing to learn these new skills. This includes basic powerboat launching & retrieval, course setting, rescue & safety procedures, race starting and time keeping methods. There are also many other courses available for club members, including First Aid Certificate, Radio Licence, Powerboat Handling & Licensing, Assistant Instructor and Instructor courses, Rescue Boat Handling, Safety Courses, Judge Courses, Racing Officer Courses and more, many of which are sponsored by the club and are free for club members.

We are always interested in providing new courses, so if you need to learn something relevant to club activities, let us know.
