We Had A Dream – IYT Bareboat skippers

2023-12-05T13:28:10+11:00

This past month we welcomed two eager students to become sailors. They are chasing a dream - one that impacts their future. Their story: "Our sailing dream started when we were sitting in a marina one day and looking at the yachts. We thought, "that would be a nice life!" Our mind was made up and we decided to look into ways to accomplish this. Thanks to Manly Sailing we now are so much closer to achieving our dream of retiring and living on a boat. In the beginning, we didn’t know where to start. We phoned Manly Sailing and [...]

School Sailing Continues Into Winter

2022-06-10T19:54:36+10:00

Will winter put a freeze on school sailing? Never! The autumn and winter seasons typically see a slowing down for youth sailing; but at Manly Sailing, things are just starting to heat up. Our die-hard sailors are excited by the stronger winds, and they’re super keen to get out on the water – after putting on an extra jacket first! Despite the challenges the last couple of years have ushered in with COVID and remote learning, two Northern Beaches Secondary College schools, Balgowlah Boys Campus and Manly Selective Campus have supported students to attend the weekly Wednesday afternoon training [...]

Resources to encourage outdoor play for children

2022-07-02T20:26:35+10:00

Resources to encourage your children to put down their devices and play outside Guest blog contributed by StopNDD.org! A TV or tablet might provide your child’s favourite form of entertainment, but as a parent, you probably wish they would take a bigger interest in playing outside. There’s nothing wrong with playing a few educational games or occasionally watching programs on TV, but there's a world of nature out there with so much potential for fun, learning, stimulation, and imagination! In fact, the dependence on screen-time has become such an issue that the term 'nature-deficit disorder' was coined to describe what [...]

Discover Windsurfing Day

2019-04-02T16:57:43+11:00

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.

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 [...]
