Adult Learn to Sail / Australian Sailing "Start Sailing / Better Sailing" Courses

Teenagers, adults and families with children. Start Sailing courses are on Pacer Dinghies, and Better Sailing is on Hobie Catamarans. 2 or 3 students per boat. These classes are typically held over 6 consecutive Sunday mornings during our sailing season (October to April). Dates are announced at the beginning and middle of the season. Contact NYC to be added to the waiting list.

The Next Step to Sailing

Our club ethos is to encourage everyone into sailing, and we will do all we can to support sailors that have come through our training courses.

There is the option to join our Junior fleet for those of a suitable age.  Another option is to crew on any number of members boats for a Sunday afternoon race.  Maybe your pathway is to own your own boat.

Through out the year we offer training for specific fleets and for race management.  Information for these courses is distributed through our regular Membership email (Mainsheet Traveller).
