Teenage Discover Sailing courses

Sailing a dinghy can be fun and exhilarating and this program has been developed to provide a safe introduction to dinghy sailing.

Royal Brighton Yacht Club, as an accredited Australia Sailing Discover Sailing Centre, runs a wide array of dinghy sailing courses for teenagers, from the essentials skills with Start Sailing 1 to courses designed to hone racing skills.

All courses are run in 2 person dinghies and are specifically designed to allow young sailors to have fun, make new friends and learn new skills in an encouraging and safe environment. Australia Sailing requires all accredited clubs to meet the highest standards in order to achieve the best delivery. All our instructors are fully qualified.

We also run each course in small groups of up to 12 sailors to ensure that everybody has the opportunity to have quality time with the instructors.

Following the completion of Start Sailing 1 and Start Sailing 2 teens are invited to join Royal Brighton Yacht Club’s sailing program which spans a number of different classes of boats.

For more information on each course check out below or contact us directly by sending us an email at discoversailing@rbyc.org.au or calling our sailing office on (0)3 9592 3092.
