Sydney, learn to sail, club suggestions for newbie

Recommended Posts

Asking for a friend...

In need of a suggestion for the daughter of a friend looking to start sailing in Sydney

Here is what I know...

studying in Hawkesbury

living in Mosman

wants to learn to sail

wants to buy a boat

looking for a club that is social, welcoming and unpretentious  (so that cuts out most clubs :lol:)

 

If there are any anarchists willing to introduce a newbie to sailing it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Nah,

CYC big and good but impersonal...

MIddle Harbor or even RSYS would work, though both primarily keelboat clubs.

Crew is in short supply, as ever...

I was thinking Middle Harbor too.

They know how to charge for the learn to sail classes!

Hmmm,

Another idea would be to start via the Manly 16s, learning in a small skiff. Manly yc friendly for low key keelboats, friday twilights and Sunday harbour race?

I like the idea of learning in a dinghy but not sure on how keen she is to travel.

This could be a case of try once, not enjoy and move onto the next thing.  Nothing worse than a bad first experience to put a newbie off something for life.
