Learn to Sail


 ** Please note School Holiday Try Sailing is booked out **


Brisbane Sailing Squadron is a family orientated club and a Discover Sailing Centre accredited by Australian Sailing. If your child is interested in sailing as a sport, we have the perfect program to let them try it out and then, if keen, to develop their skills to competition level.


Sailing is a great skill that can be enjoyed for life from local competition up to the highest international and Olympic levels (as well as a great social weekend pastime).


Children aged 7 – 12 years can join our free Try Sailing program providing a fun sailing experience before deciding to take the plunge and join our Club and participate in its Learn To Sail program.


Our Learn To Sail (LTS) program is run by our accredited Club Coach and supported by Instructors and Assistant Instructors who hold Australian Sailing qualifications. All sailing and safety equipment is supplied, including the use of our clubs Sabot and Quest sailing dinghies.


Our philosophy around teaching sailing is that each sailor learns at a different rate and in a different way – and we won’t advance participants to the next level of learning until we are confident they are ready. Because sailing lessons are included in annual membership, it will not cost extra if things take a little bit longer to click, or if they are a “natural” and proceed through the lessons at a faster rate.
