The Get Into Small Boat Sailing Scheme makes learning to sail a fun and educational process. Great for kids, this course builds confidence to sail and race in most conditions.
Sailing a dinghy can be exhilarating and this scheme has been developed to provide a safe introduction to dinghy sailing. If you would like to learn to take control of your own small boat, this is the place to start.
By the end of the program you will have been taught the skills and knowledge required to start racing at East Fremantle Yacht Club or just enjoy being out on the water.
Sail Safely and Enjoyably
The Scheme is designed to progressively teach you how to sail, starting with the essential skills in the first level, with the gradual introduction of more advanced skills and techniques in each of the five levels.
The syllabus is clearly defined and presented in a highly visual and bright logbook that students can use to record their progress through each of the five levels of the syllabus.
The Courses encourage high standards of safety; offer encouragement of proficiency and skill development; introduce students to enjoyable dinghy racing and give them the confidence to enter races; and provide opportunities and facilities for sailors to improve their racing standards.
