Discover the joys of sailing on Sydney Harbour!
Join one of the RSYS Sailing Academy’s Discover Sailing courses and experience the beauty of our Harbour whilst developing your skills and making new friends. Whether you’re a nervous novice or looking to brush up on your skills, we offer courses for sailors of all experience levels!
Our Keelboat Discover Sailing courses are open to RSYS Members and non-members with four levels available to take you from your first sailing experience to being a skilled skipper looking for their next adventure. These course are conducted on our Club’s fleet of dynamic Elliott 7s keelboats which provide a stable platform that allow you to discover sailing without the fear of capsizing. Up to 5 sailors will be on-board the Elliott 7s with you including our friendly and enthusiastic Australian Sailing qualified Instructors.
Our courses are held on Wednesday mornings (Ladies of the Sea) and Sunday mornings (Open Courses). Both offerings follow the same Australian Sailing Discover Sailing program. The Ladies of the Sea courses on Wednesdays are open to women only and provide a friendly environment for participants to discover keelboat sailing. The Open courses on Sunday mornings are open to sailors of all ages, genders and experience levels.
