Designed for adults with no previous sailing experience, our Adult Learn to Sail course teaches the fundamentals of sailing on a small yacht, covering the skills of rigging, boat handling, sailing upwind, reaching and downwind. This course aims to develop both your theory and practical skills to a level where you can confidently take control helming (steering) or crewing on a small yacht.
Our adult keelboat courses are now run on Viper 640 sports boats! These exciting yachts sail with 3 participants plus an onboard instructor.
The course length is 12 hours and is run over 4 Saturday mornings. The cost is $300.
All of the boat equipment, life jackets and sailing gloves will be provided. Please wear sun protective clothing, a warm and waterproof jacket if it’s cold and closed in shoes. Bathers or a wetsuit are recommended on strong wind days… you could get wet!
