Learn to Sail

Gosford Sailing Club Sailing School runs a comprehensive­ set of courses designed to take the novice sailor through a series of lessons. After completing the basic courses, we can offer courses in Spinnaker & Race training, Inshore Certificate through our Sailing Academy.

Highly qualified, patient and friendly instructors will show you that sailing is a fun and exciting sport. They all meet the strict standards of the Yachting Australia.

On completion of Level 1, junior students may progress to Level 2 (a two-hour advanced course), and should be ready to join the Silver Fleet in Saturday afternoon races. Joining the Silver Fleet is an excellent opportunity to expand and fine-tune sailing skills and to introduce young sailors to the thrills of racing in an exciting, safe and supervised environment. Sailing with the Silver Fleet provides a bridge for enthusiastic, young sailors to improve their skills, gain an understanding of basic racing principles and tactics, and eventually move into club-level competition. This is a chance to gain invaluable on-water-racing experience and confidence which will help young sailors move into the GSC Junior Section if they choose to.
