Learn to Sail

Discover Junior Sailing with Gosford Sailing Club!

Gosford Sailing Club offers Yachting Australia accredited “Start Sailing” level 1 courses during School holidays of the sailing season. Each course comprises of a series of lessons conducted over 3 days of the January, April, September and October of school holidays on the beautiful and protected Brisbane Waters. The wind is typically light to moderate in the mornings and great for learning how to sail.

We have Yachting Australia accredited instructors and we provide all course specific equipment, including our RS Feva’s and Optimist training dinghies and Personal Flotation Devices (life jackets) for all attendees. Students entering the level 2 will receive a Yachting Australia logbook to track course progress. The logbook can be used at any club that teaches Yachting Australia certified courses.
