So, you want to Sail!

You are one of thousands of people of all ages who learn to sail each year in all types of craft.  Our courses are delivered by instructors trained to give you the fantastic opportunity to learn and enjoy this sport as much as you want to, regardless of your starting point.

Sailing builds a sense of adventure, confidence, a strong mental ability, is a healthy physical activity and best of all . . . . builds great friendships amongst your new sailing friends.

We offer courses for children aged 6 - 17 years, 21 participants in a group and you do not need any previous experience.

Our instructors and assistant instructors will target the program to the abilities, ages and levels of confidence within the group of children.

We supply the boats, seven RS Feva's, all the sailing equipment as well as lifejackets.  The children will all receive a certificate upon completion of the course.

As a course particpant you should bring/wear swimmers, boardshorts, a long sleeve t-shirt/rash shirt, a hat & suncream and an old pair of sandshoes or wetsuit material wet-shoes to protect your feet.  If you happen to have a wetsuit or wetsuit shorts they would be useful (however not required).

The course fee includes the use of club equipment including FEVA boats and lifejackets.

$140.00 per participant
