Sail Training Program
JUNIOR SAIL TRAINING & COACHING
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.
