Training courses at Beaumaris
Beaumaris Yacht Club provides a number of comprehensive training courses. The Club is a Yachting Australia approved “Discover Sailing Centre”.
The courses are conducted as per the Yachting Australia “Discover Sailing” syllabus, by qualified instructors. Club yachts are provided, Pacers for seniors and Optimists and Minnows for juniors.
Rescue boats are always on the water with the training fleet, and an observer is always present in the Club tower to monitor the training. Buoyancy jackets are provided by the club.
Rather than cram in two courses per sailing season, the Club conducts only one Senior and one Junior course over the whole sailing season, October to April. This enables participants to receive a longer and more productive and rewarding learn to sail experience.
The club usually hosts two Discover Sailing days in a season, where visitors to the club get the opportunity to go for a sail with club members and experience the joy of sailing firsthand. For information about the next Discover Sailing Day check our Club Calendar.
