Description

Start Sailing 2 Dinghy (Lasers), Commencing Saturday 6 January 2018, 1pm to 4pm

This course is designed to consolidate the experiences and knowledge gained in the BSC Start Sailing 1 Dinghy (Lasers) course, and to introduce skills and knowledge that will enable the successful participant to safely and competently sail a small boat in controlled conditions (light winds, enclosed waters) without guidance.

Completion of a YA Start Sailing 1 - Dinghy course is a prerequisite for this course, and this can be completed at BSC or other Discover Sailing Centres.

Saturday 6 January 2018, 1pm until 4pm
Saturday 13 January, 1pm until 4pm
Saturday 20 January, 1pm until 4pm
Saturday 27 January, 1pm until 4pm

4x3 hour sessions on Saturday afternoons

Minimum age is 18 years

What to Bring

  • Bring a hat that won’t blow off - or get knocked off
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses
  • Long-sleeved shirt
  • Drink
  • Soft shoes with light-coloured soles that you don't mind getting wet
  • Shorts and a sweater or sailing jacket (or similar)
  • Lunch (as this is not provided)

Buoyancy vests will be supplied.

Water safety awareness is an integral part of the syllabus. Sailing Lessons will not be conducted in winds of 20 knots or if a gale warning is in force. Rain will be ignored (you’re a sailor now!) Shoes must be worn on the Club’s timber deck.

Intermediate Courses and Introduction to Racing

Once you've completed your Introduction to Sailing Course, and come along on a couple of Friday twilight or Sunday races, you may be interested in learning more about sailing and/or racing. These courses will also be held in the coming weeks.

Following your first course, we’ll contact you to find out where you want to go next and in what kind of boat.

Connect with Balmain Sailing Club Activities

The BSC Sailing School is part of the Balmain Sailing Club - a community club run by volunteers.

We’re proud of our friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

BSC yacht and dinghy races are almost always followed by a delicious dinner and drinks - or our famous sausage sizzle - at the Clubhouse. Check out the calendar to see when we'll next be racing.

New crew members are ALWAYS welcome, and sailing school participants are encouraged to try out their new-found skills on members’ boats. When you finish your Introduction to Sailing course we’ll add you to our Crew Register and you can start sailing on a regular basis.
