Sailing Action


Every experienced sailor in major sailing competitions worldwide commenced sailing in a "Learn to Sail” course when they were a child and have built on to their skills from those early days. Many of our current sailing members have graduated from our learn to sail program. Our training fleet today offers Optimists for the earliest stage of children’s sailing experience. From these, they graduate to Firebugs as their skills develop. Our training for adults is conducted in Spirals, complemented with other craft including our club Moths. We also offer pathways into two-handed dinghies, starting with the club’s Herons.
