Never set foot on a yacht before but want to have a go? The Introduction to Sailing course is for you. Conducted on board one of our approved training yachts, this course will not only teach you the basics of sailing yachts, it will whet your appetite for more! The course also counts towards the 2 day RYA Start Yachting Course.
Duration: 1 day
Previous experience required: None.
You will learn to steer the yacht and work the sails as you sail the boat around beautiful Moreton Bay. The course teaches ropes & knots, how to work the sails and winches, steering and using the compass and safety on board. Students also gain some knowledge of charts and what the buoys and beacons mean. At the end of the course, not only will you understand the basics of yachting; you will be awarded a certificate from the Southern Cross School of Yachting to prove it!
Light snacks and drinks are provided, but we ask you to bring your lunch. At the Southern Cross School of Yachting we teach sailing in the simplest and most enjoyable way possible so you will not only learn more, you will have a great time doing it!
