Teenage & Adult Learn to Sail

At Chelsea Yacht Club, we feel its never too late to start your Sailing journey and grow your passion for the sport we love!

All Chelsea Yacht Club's Learn to Sail courses are delivered through our Australian Sailing accredited Bob Kaegi Discover Sailing Centre using Australian Sailing qualified sailing instructors.

Our courses follow the syllabus prescribed by Australian Sailing but have been extensively enhanced to incorporate a graded performance competency learning and assessment approach and utilise an integrated delivery format with practical on water lessons supported by comprehensive on beach and online learning materials. Both significantly increases the awareness of each new sailor to how they are progressing and what areas to focus on and leads to enhanced course outcomes. Course delivery takes into consideration that new sailors will come from a variety of age, experience and backgrounds.
