Full Day Private Lesson

  • Duration: 6 hours
  • Location: Sydney Harbour

This is designed for anyone with minimal sailing experience and is ideal for a couple considering purchasing or chartering a catamaran for the first time.

For more experienced sailors we can also tailor the lesson to help your “non-sailing” partner gain the confidence so you can work together in handling the boat with ease.

Throughout the course, you will learn how to: plan your sailing trip; cruise with confidence; navigate efficiently using electronic and paper chart plotting; hoist sails, tack, gybe, reef, plus basic sailing and motoring operations; successfully anchor and pick up moorings; safely embark and disembark at a marina; tie up and secure your vessel, and much more. We will also show you how to use the safety equipment on board.

2 Day Sailing & Training Course:

  • Duration: 2 full days and one night.
  • Location: Sydney Harbour

A great opportunity to experience some quality time aboard a cruising catamaran, spend time under sail, at anchor, sleeping, cooking and living aboard.

This Sydney Harbour Boating course is an excellent option for those who are seriously thinking of purchasing a catamaran or taking a longer charter trip.

The sail training is similar to the 6-hour course with a lot more hands-on time to practice and gain confidence. We also cover passage planning, provisioning and navigation.
