This course is ideal for people interested in sailing who have never stepped on a boat before or know very little about sailing. This 3 hour course is designed to "whet your apetite for sailing' and is conducted  in a mono hull yacht , similar to those you would hire in the Whitsunday Islands, not a sailing dinghy.

On completion of this course you will have completed part of a "Competent Crew Certificate"- perfect if you intend to charter a yacht yourself, demystify the "tangle of ropes" that make up a sailing yacht, understand how a yacht can sail towards the wind! You'll get the feel of gliding along silently in our new Catalina Sailing yacht and we are confident you'll be hooked on sailing when you step off.
