Harbour sail

This is  a great way to spend time with friends, colleagues or family learning a new activity and a great introduction to sailing if you are considering taking a course. These are great outings for visitors. and if you do have a group we can accommodate you with your own time and booking.

You don’t need any experience, just some warm clothing and a pair of sports shoes. We provide the sailing jackets and safety equipment. If it is fine then there is no place more beautiful – if it is windy then there is no place more exhilarating!


We have two boats available taking up to 14 people.

  • 1 Boat (max 7 people) $800 for 2 hours (and an additional $200 for every extra hour)
  • 2 Boats (max 14 people) $1600 for 2 hours (and an additional $400 for every extra hour)

Minimum session time is 2hrs. Allow approximately 30 mins of this for a presail briefing, gearing up and getting on the water.

What to Wear

This course has an on-the-water component. Dress warmly, even in summer. A wool or polypropylene base layer is a good idea, with at least one more warm layer on top. We provide you with a good quality set of breathable waterproof gear (pants and jacket) along with a life-jacket. A hat and sunglasses are also a good idea. Make sure that you have a strap or similar so that you don’t lose these overboard![/tab]
