Experience Sailing Melbourne Learn to Sail

Experience Sailing Weekend

Experience the sailing lifestyle on this wonderful weekend of sailing, dining and exploring Port Phillip. 

Come down to Docklands at 7:00pm Friday for a welcome drink, pizza and your first night on the boat. After breakfast we motor down the river and into Port Phillip Bay where we set the sails. Within a few hours you will learn the key skills to sail the boat as we head to Sandringham Yacht Club for lunch in the Member’s Dining Room. After lunch it’s your turn to take the helm and sail across the bay to Wyndham Harbour Marina for a hot shower, drinks and a BBQ. Overnight in the marina (which we often share with Sammy, a rather large seal). On Sunday we sail to Williamstown or Sandringham to join a race, before lunch at the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria.

You won’t be a spectator, but will learn key skills and begin to use them as you trim sails, winch sheets and try your hand on the helm.

As we motor up the river at the conclusion of your experience, enjoy a glass of bubbles and the sites of the Yarra River. We finish around 4pm.

No special gear needed. Details will be provided upon receiving your booking.

Gift Certificates available – just select ‘Gift’ when booking and we will keep this a secret and send you a personalised Certificate.
