Private Sessions

On RPAYC Elliott 7's

 If you have completed a course, want to brush up on your skills or just want to get on the water, why not come down for one of our training sessions. Keep your skills sharp without committing to a full program, and get out on beautiful Pittwater when it suits you best. These sessions are ideal for people who are short on time but still love sailing! Our prices are all inclusive of boat hire, instructor hire and insurance.

Training sessions are less formal than a course and have no predefined syllabus. You have more freedom to practice what you choose. Contact the Sailing Office on 9998 3771 or email sailing@rpayc.com.au to book.

There is space on board for upt to 4 participants. Private Keelboat Lesson's are priced at $100 per hour with a minimum session time of 2 hours, however we recommend 3 hours as a more efficient use of time.
