We offer this program in either a 10 or 20 half day sail package, with 10 sails at $700 and 20 sails at $1200. Your sails will initially be on a 6m keelboat called an Elliott with one of our instructors. The aim of these sails is to guide you through the Start Crewing, Start Helming, and Start Skippering course competencies. Upon completion of the competencies, you will be able to use any remaining sails to take the boats out with your friends and family.
As a 20 sail package member you also gain access to our latest addition in the fleet, the Far East 28R. Once you are deemed competent on the Elliott you are able to gain tuition on the Far East 28R. This is a larger vessel which is designed for racing however some of our current members have enjoyed fantastic picnic cruises around the bay with their family on it also.
The Sail Our Boats program is perfect for those wishing to learn to sail, those wishing to sail but do not own a boat or those who want to have fun and meet new people!

- Wednesdays 1230 – 1615 – Far East 28R (WAGS – this session is recommended for racing experience)
