Course Description

This is your first step in learning to sail. Start Crewing is the first component of the Australian Sailing Keelboat training course. It is the perfect introduction to the basics of sailing. You'll get familiar with the boat and the key responsibilities of being a crew member. You'll get the confidence to control the sails and a basic understanding of the effects of most controls. Lifejackets are provided, all of our instructors are fully qualified, and Pittwater is one of the best locations to learn on the East Coast. There is no experience necessary and no assumed knowledge, just come along to have fun and we'll take care of the rest.
