Kids Learn To Sail – Optimist Fleet

Our most popular Lear to Sail programme is aimed at kids 8-15 years of age. You will learn to rig and de-rig the boat, tacking and gybing, and other basics of sailing. We use our optimist dinghies which are very basic, fun to sail, and therefore perfect to build your confidence on the water.

The programme runs every Sunday during the school summer terms. The cost is $60 per term plus annual membership.

Contact us for further details or just simply come to the club and give it a go.

All participants must be members of the club in addition to the learn to sail programme fee.

Good sailing gear is required, we recommend Wet suit, booties, beanie and a wind proof jacket. A properly fitted life jacket is compulsory and helmet is recommended
