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.

1.  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.
