Fremantle Sailing Club offers a comprehensive learn to sail program for adults who are either keen to try sailing or have the ambition to develop their skills to a level where they can sail confidently.

The learn to sail pathway starts with a Try Sail program and develops into a regular weekly training group with the option of club racing.

The Try Sail program gives you an introduction to sailing on small keelboats called SB20’s. Each keelboat can accommodate 3 to 4 participants together with an Australian Sailing accredited Instructor.

Here you will learn the foundation skills of sailing including the roles on the boat, how to set the boat up efficiently, and some information on the weather and the environment. The Instructor will ensure you have an enjoyable experience out on the water and are given a safe introduction to a lifelong and socially engaging sport.

12 hour program over 3 Saturday mornings, 8:30am – 12:30pm ($300 per person)

A consistent weekly Saturday morning training group from 0900 – 1200 during the Summer Season.

This program will be launched in January and continue until the end of April. The training will be on the club SB20 keelboats (shown in photos) with an on-board coach.

The goal of this regular training is to develop your sailing skills to a level where you can confidently sail a keelboat without a coach and transition to racing on a Saturday afternoon.

As a pre-requisite you will need to have completed a Try Sail course or have sailing experience.

To register for the training group:
– Register and pay a monthly training fee ($180 members // $200 non-members)

Please note you will need to register for each month independently on the links below.

As a pre-requisite, you need to have completed sufficient training in the bronze fleet. 

Here you have the option to start club racing. The SB20’s race with the dinghy section on a Saturday afternoon from 13:00 – 16:00 during the Summer Season, October through to April.

You can book a place to race with a coach on-board for 4 Saturdays at a time.

Here is an opportunity for members to use a Club owned SB20 to compete in the dinghy racing on a Saturday afternoon.

The sailing office will give you an induction on the boat and ensure you have sufficient skills to be able to race the boat on your own.
