Try Yachting

Try Yachting

Experience the magic of Sydney Harbour on board one of our race tuned yachts. This three hour lesson introduces you to the exciting sport of sailing in a safe and controlled way. It is a great way to meet new friends and have fun on the water.

Sailing in SydneyTry Yachting is ideal for beginners.

But if you are already experienced you are still welcome to join us for some fresh sea air and sunshine. Or why not introduce a friend to sailing?

Safety first

The lesson begins with a short safety briefing and an explanation of the basic parts of the yacht, as well as use of clutches, winches, halyards and sheets.

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

Apres sail

Apres sail refreshments are available in the waterside 'sand bar' at Middle Harbour Yacht Club or you can enjoy lunch in a local cafe.

Morning or afternoon? 

We run our Try Yachting experience in the morning and afternoon so you can choose a time that suits. 

Private charter

If you are a group you can book Try Yachting as a private charter for up to 10 people and pay only $990
