Try Sail

Try Sail is our brand new introductory sailing course for children aged 7-10. The course aims to deliver a fun on-water experience for kids to try the sport of sailing at an affordable entry price. The course is run by Australian Sailing accredited instructors and incorporates games, adventures and group training drills to develop fundamental skills in a safe environment. There isn’t a court, a pitch or an oval like other sports, instead you have the beautiful Swan River to explore.

Try Sail is run over four 3 hour sessions. The course runs throughout summer with an intake on the first Saturday of each month and additional courses during school holidays. The course has a special price of $100 during school terms and $150 during school holidays.

Once sailors have completed a Try Sail course they can receive an invitation to join our Optimist Green Fleet weekly training group to continue developing their skills and passion for the sport of sailing, or alternatively may complete a few extra Try Sail sessions to further develop confidence and skills in the boat before progressing.

Feel free to contact our Head Coach,, and Training Coordinator,, with any questions about the course and getting your child involved.
