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.
