About our teenager learn to sail program
This program is the perfect way to try out sailing and have fun on the water making use of our stand-up paddle boards, kayaks and powerboats to keep the program fun and safe in all conditions. The program is created for 12-17 year old's who are interested in trying out sailing in a non-competitive, social and fun setting. We encourage teenagers to learn new skills and spend time with friends in a new and exciting environment. The Club uses a wide variety of boats including Dinghies, Stand Up Paddle Boards, Windsurfers and Power boat adventures during our programs. All WSC programs are delivered by qualified Australian Sailing Instructors.
This program gives teenagers the flexibility & variety they want in a fun focused setting, whilst still providing them with important life skills. The key aspect of this program is to facilitate a social environment where teenagers are able to cultivate real friendships with other's from their local area, whilst potentially igniting a love for sailing in the process. Socialisation and fun both on and off the water are paramount; club culture is inclusive of everyone and there is plenty for parents and teenagers to get involved with.
Some ability to swim is preferable, however they will be wearing lifejackets at all times.
