The camp is an introduction to sailing for those new to sailing, or for those children already enrolled in learn-to-sail program who would like some additional ‘time-on-the-water’ with coaches to quickly improve their sailing skills.

• Parts of the boat and what rope pulls which sail
• Points of sail – upwind, downwind, reaching and running
• Rules of the water – Port and Starboard
• How to steer a tiller boat
• Crew and skipper positions and roles
• Tacking and gybing

Limited to 15 per camp, bookings essential to secure your spot.

Cost is $295.00pp for the three days.
