The Start Sailing 2 dinghy course (formerly Basic Skills 2) is the ideal consolidation learn-to-sail course, which is both fun and instructional.This five week course (3 hour sessions) is suitable for previous learn to sail students of all ages with training conducted in off-the-beach dinghies, such as Pacer and Heron types.
In particular this course allows for the refinement of sailing skills learned in the Start Sailing 1 course, but now put into practice. As students alternate the role skipper & crew, the course provides a solid grounding to further adult sailing in both keelboats and / or dinghies. The Start Sailing 2 course is part of the nationally recognised Yachting Australia Dinghy Program and is delivered by accredited sailing instructors.
Course topics include:
Training takes place in St. Kilda harbor & surrounding waters of Port Phillip, which provides sailing experience with sea winds, waves & beach launching. Sailing is conducted in 2 person dinghies such as Pacer and Herons with instructor supervision from powered safety craft. Max class size is 18 students.
We offer a full range of dinghy sailing courses. Our location at St.Kilda is ideal for dinghy sailing with beach launching, a sheltered harbour on Port Phillip and consistent sea breezes.
Whether you have never sailed before, or if you have lots of experience but are just looking to hone specific skills, there is a course for you.These group lessons are suitable for young people 12 years and up, and adults of all ages. For youth and adult dinghy training we use X3 Extreme, Pacer & Heron dinghies.
