Adult sailing lessons - practicing on the land

“I thought the course was absolutely fantastic. I loved every minute of it. It was a great balance of theory and practice, from very knowledgeable, experienced and fun instructors! I think the best bit was being left as a pair on the boat to tak and gybe ourselves, with the instructor close at hand in case of disaster – challenging and great to be put out of our comfort zone!” feedback received.

The focus of these sailing lessons on Botany Bay is to give you confidence and really feel like you know what you are doing on a small boat. Our aim is to get complete beginners to be able to sail on their own and even feel confident enough to take a boat out on their own without an instructor about.
