RYA START YACHTING COURSE

During the course you will learn the basic nautical terminology, how to steer the yacht and handle the sails. We also teach you how to tie knots, handle ropes and use the winches. You will learn how to be safe on board and use the correct safety equipment.

You also learn about anchoring, docking and mooring.

The weekend will be spent sailing around the Gold Coast area in the broadwater, and in the open ocean if conditions permit.

At the end of the course you will understand the basics of yachting and be awarded a certificate to put in your logbook. This is a great fun course and a fantastic way of seeing if sailing is for you. Bring the whole family along as there is no minimum age for Start Yachting.

  • No previous Experience is Required, just a sense of adventure.
  • The weekend will be spent sailing around the Gold Coast area in the broadwater, and in the open ocean if conditions permit.
  • We like to get the crew on board on a Friday evening, spending the night on board in the marina, and sailing all day Saturday and Sunday with Saturday night on anchor.
  • Drinks and meals at the yacht club are not included.
  • You will need suitable boat shoes.
  • All lifejackts and safety equipment are supplied for your use during the course
  • You may need to share a cabin if we have a full crew. (a cabin is one large bed, so you are sharing a matress.)
