Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

    During your weekend sailing course, you will get to learn the basics of yachting onboard one of our 40 foot yachts. Spend a weekend away on the yacht, as we spend the night at anchor or another harbour and enjoy the delights of night sailing. The weekend course includes all meals whilst onboard the yacht (alcohol is not included). You will learn to steer the yacht and work the sails, whilst sailing the boat around beautiful Moreton Bay. The course teaches ropes & knots, how to work the sails and winches, steering and using the compass and safety on board. You will also gain some knowledge of charts and what the buoys and beacons mean. At the end of the course, not only will you understand the basics of yachting, you will be awarded the 'Start Yachting' certificate from the (Royal Yachting Association) RYA to prove it! No previous experience is necessary and for those who have sailed before, this is a great refresher or an ideal way to get more experience on the water.
