Learn to Sail Course

Learn to Sail (LTS) is our introductory training course for anyone interested in learning the basics of sailing. Participants sail in small dinghies called Pacers. 

During the course, participants learn to rig a dinghy, practise basic sailing and capsizing techniques, tie knots, read weather maps and understand the basic rules and regulations of sailing.

After the course, we encourage you to join our Club and take advantage of our other programs designed to further increase your skills.
