We represent Australia's largest sailing school offering Royal Yachting Association (RYA) courses on the most comprehensive and versatile fleet of commercially surveyed yachts. We run sailing courses for all levels of expertise. Our Start Yachting Course is run over 2 single days and comprises 12 hours on the water plus a classroom session. A course kit including an RYA learn to sail book is included. An optional twilight race is included. Our RYA Yachtmaster instructors are highly qualified and skilled, our yachts are Beneteau 33.7 (10m).

We are based in Rushcutters Bay, 10 minutes from the City and adjacent to the famous Cruising Yacht Club of Australia who welcome international visitors.

Our instructors are the most highly qualified in Australia and have been hand picked by us for his or her ability to teach in a friendly, relaxed and professional manner! They are all RYA Yachtmasters with an RYA instructor endorsement and all hold either a Coxswain or Master Class 5 qualification with NSW Maritime. In addition they all hold a current first aid certificate and sea safety and survival qualifications.

The RYA's training schemes are highly respected the world over, with more than 150,000 people completing RYA courses each year. Their courses and qualifications are the most recognised maritime qualifications in the world, with the RYA Yachtmaster being regarded as the pinnacle of this highly successful sail training scheme and being recognised as a fully commercial certificate of competence in many parts of the world. Recreational sailors will find that most charter companies will understand and recognise the standards that are represented by RYA courses.

RYA accredited schools have to maintain high standards as they are annually audited and courses have to follow the strict syallbus governed by the RYA. If standards are not maintained the school will have its RYA recognition revoked. Spot inspections are also carried out to maintain the quality of courses being delivered.

As an accredited RYA school, we deliver internationally recognised practical and shore based RYA courses, ranging from the RYA Start Yachting Certificate for beginners through to the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore certificate, which can be commercially endorsed by MCA on successful completion.

All RYA courses taught at Eastsail include the relevant RYA course books – each one a highly researched, professional text designed to complement the practical and theory sessions, as well as being fantastic texts in their own right for the non-student. The books are updated annually to keep up with modern trends and advances in technology and have been modified specifically to suit the market in the Southern Hemisphere.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Individuals can book into our courses and join 2-3 others.
