We apologise but currently we are not conducting any Learn to Sail courses for adults or children. We envisage to re commence in 2019. Our junior sailing programme is always looking for new recruits. If you are aged between 8-15 yrs old and still would like to try sailing as a sport please contact our Sailing Committee – sail@stgeorgesailingclub.com.au who will be happy to discuss your requirements further.

Sailing is one of the many ways to get children out in the house and into the fresh air where they can learn a new skill along with participating in a sport that is both a team and individual sport.

Sailing is Fun………..!

School Holiday Sailing Camps

Our popular 5 day camps provide a safe and fun introduction to small boat sailing for children during the Summer School Holidays. We like to ensure that all our participants receive the very best in learning plus on water time so we limit our courses to small numbers. Numbers are limited!

The camp runs from 9.30pm to 3.30pm each day and includes an introduction to small boat handling skills, the basics of sailing, confidence in boats plus having a heap of fun with other kids. Lunch and refreshments are provided at our holiday courses.

Our camps are aimed at beginners however  we can accomodate an advanced sailing camp for kids who already know the basics of sailing and would like to improve their skills further ready for racing.

Our aim at the end of each course is to have confident sailors who love the sport and want to go to the next level.
