Course Description

Now you have successfully progressed through to the final stage of the syllabus, it's time to take your sailing to a new level - it's time to start racing. That's right, competing against your mates to see who can get around the course the fastest. The Start Racing is the 5th and final component in the Australian Sailing Keelboat training course.The beauty of this course, like it's "Spinnakers Course" counterpart, is it's flexibility to teach the racing tactics at both an elementary level to those new to the concept or to hone the skills of the seasoned yachtsman. This course takes a wholistic focus to racing, considering all components of required teamwork from all crew and skipper to successfully get around the course faster than your competitors. Lifejackets are provided, all of our instructors are fully qualified, and Pittwater is one of the best locations to learn on the East Coast. Students will be expected to have ticked off the key components in the "Start Crewing", "Start Helming", "Start Skippering" & "Spinnakers" components or have equivalent knowledge and experience.
