Race Day On Saturday 13th of April 9-12pm we will be organising a sailing event for all of our junior sailors. The morning will be about fun, games and adventure. To make the day more exciting we will be introducing racing rules and a finish line. This is a great way for the junior sailors to develop a greater interest and take sailing to the next level. Afterwards we will be having a sausage sizzle on the deck when the kids come back in, to thank you for this term and your continued support of Manly Sailing. It's only [...]
Try Windsurfing Manly Sailing has a passion for sailing and every new day is another adventure. For that reason, we felt it was time to challenge our sailors and we had the opportunity to converse with experienced windsurfers and partner up with Australian Sailing and BIC Australia. Therefore, we now want to see if there is some interest here in Manly for windsurfing courses. Windsurfing is another fantastic water sport and it is basically a mix of sailing and surfing. It could be a great addition to Manly Sailing and our location here in Manly. To see whether there [...]
Wow, what a start of the new year! We've had more than a hundred kids joining us between three 3-day camps this month. The response that we got from the kids were that they really enjoyed learning to sail, including theory and exercises such as rigging, derigging, capsizing, turtling, follow the leader etc. and most important of all, they made so many new friends which is so fun for us to see! This time, we decided to offer two camps depending on the kids previous sailing experience. The intention was to challenge the more experienced kids and further [...]

Manly Sailing Cup It is very important for us at Manly Sailing that our young sailors feel safe while they are out on the water. As you can see in the video below, capsizing happens out there and we want everyone to feel confident enough to handle such situations and get back on, to continue a nice sail. The shots in this video are taken from Manly Sailing Cup which we run every Friday to challenge our more experienced sailors. Races are also a great way to improve skills as well as gain new ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gn5TJ14u0E [...]
Trick or Treat? We just wanted to show you how much fun we are having at our sailing lessons!

Enjoy the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seZKCWLt_OQ
3 day camp https://youtu.be/toafoD8CFyQ We really believe that outdoor activities are good for kids and taking the kids sailing out on the water makes it even better as they get fresh air and learn new skills at the same time. Another important thing is that they make new friends as they are having lots of fun and that is just a few reasons to why we run sailing camps during the school holidays. We asked the kids and their parents what they liked most about the camp and we are very happy with the response that [...]
Fun, Exciting & Adventurous As a parent, you probably recognise yourself in the parental situation when your kids are growing too quickly and suddenly they are not interested in playgrounds, outdoor activities and games anymore and you are feeling confused how to engage them from here. Because if we don’t take action and give the kids a push in the right direction at this stage, they might end up spending hours in front of their laptops or smart phones and that is just not ideal for anyone’s health. At that time, many of you are probably thinking of things [...]
