BLAIRGOWRIE YACHT SQUADRON

Learn to Sail

You’re never too young or old to start.

One of the great things about sailing is the feeling of belonging to a community who love spending time together on the water. And when the day is over, sharing everything you did together with friends and family is pretty good too. At BYS we understand this and we know that the better you are at the fundamental skills of sailing, no matter what your age, the more fun you have.

 

That’s why BYS Sailing and Boating Centre is an accredited Discover Sailing Centre under the auspices of Australian Sailing. Which means that when you make the decision to learn to sail with us or improve your skills through any of our various training courses, you’ll be learning from the best.

 

Our family-orientated club provides a welcoming environment with first class facilities and programs that are all inclusive and affordable. At BYS there is an option to suit everyone when it comes to learning to sail, all our courses involve both on-water and classroom activities and are conducted by accredited Australian Sailing instructors and assistants who will support you every step of the way.
