Course information

Registration for this course closes at Mon 09 Dec 2024 00:00.

Our school holiday courses are Discover Sailing Level 1/2 courses. They assume no prior sailing knowledge or experience. We have at least two Qualified Instructors who have been trained in sailing, as well as being trained through the Y's safeguarding program. 

Students who successfully complete the course will be ready to take a boat out by themselves. They will be able to tack and gybe and stop alongside a buoy or moored boat. They will have a knowledge of and experience in applying sailing right-of-way rules. Successful students will be awarded an Australian Sailing Discover Sailing Level 2 certificate. If the instructors feel that participants could use some more training/coaching before attaining this qualification, they will work with the participants to create a plan forwards.
