If the above course dates don’t necessarily fit in with your schedule we can certainly tailor make a course around your availability with private lessons either during the week or on weekends.  Private lessons are also great for sailors who would like some one on one coaching in their own boats with their own crews, or for families combining juniors and adults on the same boat. Fees are based on an hourly rate, and we have a number of Yachting Australia Accredited Sailing Instructors to choose from, including past National Champions and our High Performance Racing and current Australian Sailing Team Coach Shane Smith.  All enquiries please call the Sailing Office.
