Never set foot on a yacht before but want to have a go? Then Start Yachting is the course for you. Conducted on board one of our approved training yachts, this course will not only teach you the basics of sailing yachts, it will wet your appetite for more! The 2 days of this course also count towards the RYA Competent Crew Course.
You will learn to steer the yacht and work the sails as you sail the boat around beautiful Moreton Bay. The course teaches ropes & knots, how to work the sails and winches, steering and using the compass and safety on board. Students also gain some knowledge of charts and what the buoys and beacons mean. At the end of the course, not only will you understand the basics of yachting; you will be awarded a certificate from the Southern Cross School of Yachting to prove it!
The course can be taken as 2 one-day courses (not necessarily consecutive) or as a weekend away with the yacht spending the night at anchor and enjoying the delights of some night sailing. The 1-day course includes lunch and morning and afternoon tea and the weekend course includes all meals on board. At the Southern Cross School of Yachting we teach sailing in the simplest and most enjoyable way possible so you will not only learn more, you will have a great time doing it!
