Sail Training Program


The Goolwa Aquatic Club hosts a very successful sail training program for beginners and the more experienced.  Many of our junior sailors go on to be involved in dinghy racing and compete at State and National level. The club uses Pacer Dinghies for our basic Learn to Sail classes as well as Opti's as the single handed sail training boat.
Learn to Sail
This course covers the basics of Dinghy Sailing,  (7-15yo) . Participants will learn the theory and practical aspects of sailing a dinghy.  
It's fun, safe and a great introduction to the sport of sailing. All equipment is supplied including the PFDs, helmets and boats.
Course runs for 3 hours x 4 days and is instructed by Qualified Australian Sailing Instructors. 
The 2021 course has been held; visit this page later in 2021 for details of the 2022 course.
