This winter, we are offering 4-week long sessions covering discover sailing course level Start Sailing 2 through to Better Racing (Better Sailing & Start Racing). RBYC Juniors (and sailors from other clubs) are invited to join discover sailing courses. The courses are in 4 week blocks of 3 hour sessions from 9am to 12pm. (Winter Session 1 is 3weeks x 4 hours (8:30 – 12:30))

Club OziOptis, Sabots and Pacers can be provided depending on the sailor. It is encouraged that sailors train in their own boats if they have them. All classes are welcome to join. A minimum of 6 sailors is required for each course to run, if the courses do not run we will endeavour to let you know as soon as possible.

The Discover Sailing dinghy levels that we follow are: Start Sailing 1 – Start Sailing 2 – Better Sailing – Start Racing – Better Racing.  Tackers 2 graduates are encouraged to join Start Sailing 2 and Tackers 3 to join Better Sailing. If you are unsure what level your sailor is at, feel free to contact us to discuss which course would be most appropriate.

The course costs are as follows:

  • $160 with own boat
  • $200 using a club boat

It is $40 extra for non-RBYC members.
