LEARN TO SAIL

Since the mid-1940s MYC has developed a rich history of producing State, National and International champions.  This tradition of sailing development continues through the training program, which is designed for people who want to learn to sail so they can race or just have fun on the water in a friendly environment.

 

 

School Holiday Junior Sailing Courses:   

This course is aimed specifically at school aged sailors who are interested in learning a new skill, or who want to revisit the basics.  

 

Out last school holiday course was in April 2021.  Next course is scheduled for September 2021.  Please return to the this page closer to the date to book.  Or watch our Facebook page.

 

 

Sunday Morning Learn to Sail:

Our trainee fleets (LTS and Bronze fleet) sail on Sunday mornings.  Training finishes around midday to make way for the afternoon racing.  Formal training has ceased for the winter season, and will resume in October 2021.

 

 

 

Bronze Fleet:
Sailors who have completed the Learn to Sail course, or have previous comparable sailing experience can join the Bronze Fleet. It is run alongside the Sunday morning Learn to Sail Fleet and prepares sailors for racing conditions, as well as more advanced skills.

Bronze Fleet sailors may be invited to join the Silver Fleet after demonstrating the skills and competency necessary for racing. Please email us or speak to the coaches on Sunday morning for more information.

 

 

Sailors are coached on Mirror dinghies (2 in a boat), and ultimately learn to sail a marked course.  The Club also has Lasers and Minnows if it is appropriate for the trainee. Sailors must be able to swim 25m unassisted.  We welcome the assistance of all family members. For example, parents or partners may like to help as a support boat driver, with junior training, or in the canteen.

Instructors hold Working with Children checks.  Maylands Yacht club observes COVID safe practices.
