Discover Yachting

Experience the magic of a day sailing on Sydney Harbour in comfort and style on board one of our race tuned yachts. This is a great way to meet new friends and have fun.

Discover Yachting

A typical day begins with a short safety briefing, we then explain the basic parts of the yacht as well as the use of winches, halyards and sheets.

Next we head out into Middle Harbour for some gentle crew training before setting sail for Sydney Heads and a taste of the mighty Pacific ocean.

You will learn how to hoist and trim the sails, sail across the wind, helm the boat on different points of sail and tack and gybe.

Relax as hard as you like 

You can join in, get active and learn basic sailing skills or relax as hard as you like while our friendly, professional instructor shows you the ropes.

We often see dolphins and whales and occasionally flying fish!

Lunch at anchor

After enjoying a tasty picnic lunch at anchor, and maybe a bit of swimming or snorkeling in one of Sydney's magnificent coves, we sail on to Shark Island for a view of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and the essential photo shoot.

Waterside bar

We return to the Yacht Club in good time for a few light refreshments in the waterside bar. Why not complete your perfect day with dinner at the Club bistro restaurant overlooking the marina?
