SAIL OUR BOATS
LEARN-TO-SAIL PACKAGE

RQYS now offers the option to pay $600.00 for 10 sails in 12 months, or $1,000 for 20 sails in 12 months. In these sails, you will be taught to sail by our experienced and friendly instructors, awarded the Start Skippering Certification, and then you will be able to use the rest of your 3-hour sails, to privately use the boats without an instructor. Work through the course competencies at your own pace, and once you’re deemed competent to Skipper you can use any remaining sails to take the boat on your own with your own friends and family. We will email you and advise what lessons are available to book into when you are learning. When you are certified and competent, you will need to contact us to organise when you can privately use the boats.

This is the perfect option for people who want to learn to sail and then privately use boats without the supervision of Instructors, or competent sailors who do not own a boat. It is also extremely flexible and incredible value. This package also allows you to skipper the boat yourself during club racing, once you’ve been ticked-off as a Competent Skipper. See more! 

If you think you’d prefer to commit to a course (regular attendance requirements), our Dinghy and Keelboat courses are the perfect option for you – See Below!
