We have hundreds of people try sailing for the first time and participate in our courses which are designed to progress you through learning the skills and gaining the knowledge you need to sail a small keelboat.
The courses we offer here at the NCYC, as an accredited Discover Sailing Centre, are part of Australian Sailing’s “National Keelboat Program.”
The Keelboat program provides a fun and accessible entry into sailing and equips you with the essential skills required to safely sail a small keelboat.
As your skills progress, you will also develop an understanding of each person’s role and how teamwork plays a major part of being an effective crew. You will come away with the knowledge and confidence to sail a small boat competently and for those that wish, you can progress to larger boats or participate as crew on a racing yacht.
Your instructor will sign off when you have reached the competencies required within the syllabus and which enable you to receive your “nationally recognised” certificate.
So, if you are 16 years or older and want to try something new and exciting… come and join us on the water!
