 KEELBOAT COURSES

 Our Keelboat courses provide a fun and accessible entry into sailing and gives participants further opportunity to improve and develop sailing skills and techniques.

The courses will equip you with the essentials required to safely sail a small boat without the fear of capsizing or getting wet! As your skills progress, you will also develop an understanding of each person's role and how teamwork plays a major part of being an effective crew. There is a maximum of 3 people for each course.
