OutThere Sailing is the ideal way to have fun and get active on the water and is all about:
- Having fun while experiencing sailing.
- Socialising with friends and making new ones.
- Learning how to sail in an inclusive environment.
- Developing life-long friendships and learning team skills.
The aim of the program is to have fun, spend time with friends and learn new skills. All of our youth programs are delivered by qualified Australian Sailing Instructors.
This program is aimed at 12-17 year olds who would like to try sailing, keelboat sailing, stand up paddleboarding and powerboating. There are two sailing skills sets to develop in the form of helming and crewing. Ideally getting a balance between both is great but if you would prefer to do one over the other there are plenty of ways to have fun. OutThere also focuses on the social element of a club environment, simply enjoying time spent with peers whether that be on the water, on the beach or in the clubhouse.
The program is currently running as a pilot whilst we tweak the details. By summer we expect to be offering other variations, still designed to keep friends together. So a person on OutThere Sailing 1 and OutThere Sailing 2 can sail together. Our OutThere programs will be delivered two different ages groups, 12 – 14 and 15 – 17 as we progress over summer. We do this to make sure that the courses are as welcoming socially as possible.
