Learn to Sail

Sailing Courses for Adults and Children

Learn to Sail at Manly Sailing where we offer courses for all levels and ages and  a Fun, Safe and Exciting experience.

Sailing is such a social sport and learning to sail can mean not only acquiring a new skill but often a new social circle and a new hobby.

For adults, once you have learned to sail there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in Yacht Clubs and continue sailing either socially or through Yacht Racing. Manly Sailing are happy to help our students get a place on a yacht crew. Like the ones in this video!

For children, learning to sail means gaining confidence, increased water awareness and a skill that can last the whole of their lives. For a child, there is nothing better than hanging out and having fun with another bunch of kids and at Manly Sailing our sole aim is to develop happy, confident sailors.

Our Ladies Courses have been developed for those who want to learn to sail mid week and have shorter lesson times, it also became known as Sailing Mums due to the many wonderful Mums who have joined us regularily on week day Mornings throughout the year.

Read about our courses from the Links below or email us on info@manlysailing.com.au  and we’ll send full details to you.

Here’s what some of our recent customers have to say!

Hi Anne and Chris

Thank you!!

Greg and I had a great day, a good refresher for Greg and I feel much more confident! Yesterday went quickly, just kept waiting for the next instruction and then the day was done! Chris kept us on our toes with easy and informative teaching. Weather was a bit wet!, even so was good to experience the extremes from gentle water and no wind to a big swell and nearly too much wind topped with a ‘slight’ downpour!! Just love the Melbourne weather!!

Yes we still have a lot to learn, and appreciated the day with Chris, it was what we were hoping for and more.

Well done both of you, a great team providing a wonderful service.

Once again many thanks.

All the best

Greg and Janet

Hi Anne,

Thank you so much for organising last Friday. The teachers that went said that the trainers were amazing. The skills sessions they ran were fantastic.

The girls really improved their skills and the sessions definitely improved their interest in sailing.

We would to come back in the future!

Thanks again for everything,

Sports Co-ordinator Mackellar Girls High School
Hi Anne, I just did the beginner sailing course today and it was absolutely amazing. Chris definitely knows his stuff and he was also very entertaining while ‘showing us the ropes’. Even with the high traffic today we felt very save in Chris’s capable hands. I’m very interested in continuing so I’m going to practice as a crew member and if you can send me some info on your follow up courses that would be great!

Thank you
