Discover Sailing

It is now even easier to get into sailing with the launch of Australian Sailing’s new entry program called Discover Sailing.

With very little cost or commitment, participants can enjoy the marvels of sailing. There’s a multitude of ways to get involved; learn to sail, social sailing, or even racing. There are dozens of boats every week looking for crew and a new online register simplifies the process all round.

Like most things, it’s good to try before you buy. With the introduction of Discover Sailing Experiences, you can do just that.  For as little as $135 you can book into one of the Academy’s experiences.  During the three hours you’ll see why millions of people around the world love sailing.


If you want to learn more about sailing, it’s then time to enrol in one of our many courses.  Firstly, it’s a good idea to decide what style of sailing interests you.  The wet, fast and exciting Dinghy sailing or the group environment of Keelboat sailing.

There’s a ‘Start Sailing’ course for each. Youth DinghyAdult Dinghy and Adult Keelboat.  If you are aged between 7-12 the choice is easy, Tackers.


It’s now time to put these newly acquired skills into action.  You can choose to learn advanced techniques in a ‘Better Sailing’ course, or participate in a number of other ways.  If you are interested in participating in a club race, the Boating Academy can arrange to have an Instructor take you out on a Discover Racing Experience.
