Never set foot on a yacht before but want to have a go at learning the ropes? Conducted on board one of our approved 40 foot training yachts, this practical, two-day, hands-on course will teach you the basics of sailing yachts!
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.
Weekend courses are available every weekend and commence at 9am on Saturday and return to the marina at 4pm on Sunday. We require bookings to be made at least 1 day in advance of the sailing courses commencement.
Suitable for almost anyone - Children 12-16 years must be accompanied by a parent / guardian. Whilst onboard the yacht, we will provide all meals, including morning and afternoon tea. Please BYO alcohol.
