Learn to Sail- Tackers and Australian Sailing Courses

Tackers (7-12 years old): 5 weekday mornings x 4 hours per morning – October and January school holidays

Adult and Teen (13 years old +): 7 Sunday mornings over 7 consecutive weeks (8.30am -11.30am) Nedlands Yacht Club offers Australian Sailing certified “Start Sailing” courses at periodic intervals across the sailing season. Each course comprises of a series of lessons conducted on weekend or school holiday mornings in the beautiful and protected waters of the Swan River. The wind is typically light to moderate in the mornings and great for learning how to sail.

NYC uses Australian Sailing accredited instructors and we provide all course specific equipment, including Puffin Pacer training dinghies and Personal Flotation Devices (life jackets) for all attendees. Students will receive a Australian Sailing logbook to track course progress. The logbook can be used at NYC or any club that teaches Yachting Australia certified courses.
