Learn To Sail

Christies Sailing Club, through the Mid-Coast Sailing Centre, is an Australian Sailing accredited training centre which offers a range of training programs for both young and adults.

The basic training course is specifically designed as a fun experience that teaches beginner sailing skills. Many students progress to sailing in the larger trailer sailor fleet on Saturday afternoons, or choose to sail dinghies off the beach. Members are encouraged to sail our club dinghies from the beach, for both enjoyment or to race.

The cost of these courses is set to attract members and our friendly Australian Sailing accredited instructors are only to pleased to assist all in making learning to sail a fun and enoyable experience. Courses start from complete beginners where no experience is needed, and progress to a proficient level of sailing.

The adult beginners course is one evening for theory topics and two full days of practical. We usually run these as either a Friday evening plus full day Saturday and Sunday on one weekend, or as consecutive Sundays, but this is flexible. Adult courses are run according to demand, you can check the events page for upcoming courses or use the contact form to register interest, and courses can be arranged to suit.

The popular junior learn to sail courses are run on Saturday mornings in Spring and Summer and progress through to our regular advanced sailor coaching.
