We offer private lessons and courses for beginner and intermediate sailors.

You can book a single lesson or schedule a series of lessons to complete an Australian Sailing level 1 or 2 certificate. 

Private tuition is, in many ways, the best way to learn to sail because you have the undivided attention of the instructor.

Learn with friends, family or work colleagues

Choose a solo lesson for the benefit of one on one coaching or why not bring a friend or a small group to reduce the price and increase the fun.

We welcome families with kids as well as corporate groups looking for some action packed teambuiding
