Rated 5 out of 5 by Great learning experience I would recommend everybody who wants to know more about sailing to experience Learn To Sail - Full Day. You will be shown how to sail a boat, what the required skills are to be a skipper and/or crew. And finally, being outside on the water sailing on a boat along the shore of Southern Brisbane and see dolphins and turtles swimming past is the best. 18 March 2013
