Experience Sailing

Step on board and experience the world of sailing in this four-hour, no-pressure, low cost introduction to your new life on the water. 

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. (Andy, steering the yacht in the photo above, had never set foot on a yacht until 2 hours earlier – that could be you!). 

Learn to tack, gybe and trim the sails for different points of sailing as we slice through the water. 

As we motor up the river at the conclusion of your experience you will enjoy refreshments and the sites of the Yarra River.

It’s set to be a memorable day on the water! Plus there is always the chance of seeing dolphins, seals and fairy penguins!

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