This is the exciting first step on the Australian Sailing Keelboat training pathway. You will begin to familiarise yourself with the vessel and the responsibilities associated with being a crew member. Your experienced Instructor will introduce you to the basics of sailing on a small boat, including boat handling, safety and sailing theory. You will cover basic sailing terminology and rules, basic knots, tacking and gybing and man overboard recovery. All of our instructors are qualified by Australian Sailing with years of experience.
We will provide life jackets, don’t forget to bring sun safe clothing, sun cream, wear non marking shoes and take a bottle of water.
For this course no experience is necessary, so come along and enjoy sailing here in Manly, one of the best locations to sail in the world!
