The club offers the perfect introduction to our wonderful sport through our Learn to Sail Program (Course details can be downloaded from the link below).


The BSS Sailing School is operated by experienced instructors. Our aim is to get you confident on the water and to enjoy the experience.


The courses typically run over six, half day sessions, where the focus is on-water activity. They are normally run on Saturday mornings. We also sometimes schedule 3 day courses during school holidays. Courses are generally not offered in Winter due to unfavourable wind conditions.

Cost is: Children (6 to 15 yrs) - $235.00; Adults (16 and over) - $330.00 (including GST) for the Saturday morning program.

Minimum age is 6 years old if with a participating parent, or 8 years old if unaccompanied.

Our Learn to Sail Program has been made possible through the aquisition of 6 "Vagabond" training craft and a Coach boat thanks to the generous support of the Brisbane City Council's Community Grants Program.

Notice Board

Pre-season Working Bee

The club would like to advise all members that we are holding a working bee at the club on Sunday 26th August, 2018 commencing at 1030hrs. We need to do a general tidy up and prepare for the new season. We will be rigging the new Quest Training Boats and it would excellent if the Assistant Coaches could attend to learn some new rigging skills. If we get a good roll up we should be finished by about 2pm at the very latest  - one hour of your time is all we need. Hope to see you then.
