FEES FEES: $110 (course fee) + $200 (boat hire if required)

Coached Racing

Participants will enjoy competitive club racing with the added benefit of an elite level coach. Each week a new topic of race strategy is covered.

Entry fee $10 per race session.

Note: We strive to make sailing affordable and inclusive. The program is run by 100% volunteer labour. Parents of at least some of the participants will need to assist.

These are informal fun programs designed around our relaxed tropical lifestyle, we do not offer Official YA log book courses at present.
