Discover Sailing Days are offered for FREE at many sailing clubs around Australia. They are a fantastic way to have a great day out with your partner, friends, work colleagues or family. Clubs look forward to showing you just how fun, safe, accessible, and affordable sailing is.
You’ll have the option to go out for a short sail with an experienced sailor, have a look around the club facilities, and find out about the programs and sailing courses available. There is something for the whole family and even kids as young as five years old can sail, when accompanied by a parent or guardian. People of all abilities are welcome and some clubs offer accessible facilities for people with a disability.
Discover Sailing Days are free to attend and all boats and safety equipment is provided by the club. All you need to bring is clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting wet, sun screen and a hat. Shoes with non-marking soles are preferred.
Every club that offers Discover Sailing Days has a Discover Sailing Host, who welcomes you to the club, answers any questions, and explains the activities taking place during the Discover Sailing Day. The schedule of activities will vary from club to club, but it’s recommended you allow at least 1.5 to 2 hours if you want to get out on the water.
Contact the Discover Sailing Host at your local club to find out more details about the Discover Sailing Days they offer.
