Women on Water
Girls Go Sailing!
Attention all girls and women!
Want to know more about boat handling in an informed manner delivered by women for girls and women?
We aim to deliver a female focused training program to increase skills, confidence and opportunities to participate in sailing for female sailers across a range of activities and learning experiences.
Keelboats allow you to learn to sail without the fear of capsizing, and usually with several other people on the boat.
Learning to sail in self-righting keelboats (or trailer sailers) provides a learning platform that is stable yet responsive.
As your skills progress, you will also develop an understanding of each persons role and how teamwork plays a major part of being an effective crew.
You should come away with the knowledge and confidence to sail a small boat competently and for those that wish, you can progress to larger boats or participate as crew on a racing boat.
Courses are run from time to time depending on demand.
