Private Training Sessions

Welcome to the Alfreds

Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club

Private Training Sessions

If you have completed a Sail Training Course and want to brush up on your skills, further build your confidence or just want to get on the water, why not come down for one of our private training sessions.

We offer both Instructing and Coaching Services.

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 usage and Australian Sailing Qualified Instructor or Coached skilled in your specific boat/Class.

Keelboat Development Coaching Session (Elliott 7)

Keelboat Development Coaching sessions are less formal than a Learn to Sail Course and have no predefined syllabus. You have more freedom to practice what you choose and when you like. These sessions are great for the regular crew on your yacht to practice boat handling and spinnaker hoist/drop techniques, on our Club Elliott 7s.

There is space on board for up to to 4 participants plus a Club Instructor/Coach.

Sessions are priced at $400 per session for members. The session time is 3 hours

Contact the Sailing Office on 9998 3771 or email for more information or to book your next session.

Coaching Service (on your yacht with your crew)

Could a professional hand help answer some of your questions or uncertainties whilst Club racing? Need some professional advice on procedure or using a new boat? Unsure about your tactics or procedures? Then maybe one of our friendly and experienced coaches can help you.

New to sailing or bought a new boat? Private coaching is for you.

The Club provides this service to Members to help stimulate participation in Club racing. 

Our Instructors/Coaches are Australian Sailing qualified, fully insured and have vast knowledge and experience, especially sailing on Pittwater.

Per hour Coaching Fee (incl. GST): $120
