Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or never been on a boat, these sessions aim to introduce more women into the wonderful world of sailing. The course is aimed at all skill levels. It offers a great social time out on the water and also an opportunity to relax and clear your mind!! Women of all ages over 16years are welcome!
WHEN: Four week courses run regularly all year round. Check out our Dates & Courses page which details all of the current scheduled courses.
PRICE: $190 per person / Discounted to $160 for return attendees for the 4-week course. $50 per session for Thursday’s “One Day at a Time” option.
Includes the use of our sailing equipment including a lifejacket and the services of a dedicated instructor (1:4 ratio).
WHAT TO BRING: Sun protective clothing including a hat (peak caps work best!), enclosed wet shoes, a wind proof jacket on cooler days can be helpful, a spare change of clothes & towel (you might get the odd splash!). We will supply a lifejacket.
EXTRA INFORMATION: You will sail on a Force 24 inshore keelboat with up to three other course participants and an experienced instructor. These small keelboats lean over however they will not capsize as they have a heavy keel under the boat. All sailing is conducted inside the Harbour, we do not go offshore in the Force 24s. We sail in most weather conditions except strong winds. Should we not be able to sail on any given day we spend the time working on some sailing theory and other practical skills that can be practised on the boat whilst in the marina or up in the clubhouse.
BOOKING IN: To ensure we have sufficient instructors rostered, we need all bookings & payments in advance.
“BUBBLES & NIBBLES” PRESENTATION: Please allow an extra half an hour on the final week of your course as we celebrate your achievements with beautiful Oatley sparkling wines and chef prepared finger foods in the NCYC Clubhouse. A most important part of your course, you will receive your certificate of completion!
