Overview

At Fremantle Sailing Club we have a beautiful protected pond away from the beach providing a super safe, controlled environment to conduct our classes in. Our classes are Yachting Australia accredited. Our courses cover basic skills. Children must be water confident and able to swim.

Sailing a dinghy can be fun and exhilarating and this program has been developed to provide a safe introduction to dinghy sailing. It is designed to teach participants how to sail, starting with the essential skills in the first course "Start Sailing 1".

More advanced skills and techniques are gradually introduced as students progress through the syllabus, so that by the end they will be ready to start racing at their local sailing club or just enjoy being out on the water .While it is not essential to start at the beginning, it will be harder to master the more advanced skills if students are not familiar with the basics. 

•The courses are 5 day courses and run from Mondays through to Fridays - 8:30 am to 12noon each day
•These classes are open to the public and suitable for children between 8 and 11 years of age.
•Children must be water confident and able to swim (buoyancy jackets supplied)
