Course Summary

One of our short taster sessions for young people that builds confidence in and around boats and water. They will enjoy rides in powerboats, paddling in Oppies (small dinghies which are very stable) and going for a sail with one of our instructors at the helm. This fun packed morning is the ideal way to try something new during the summer holidays and is perfect for younger siblings who want to see what all the fuss is about for themselves.

Please note that a Parent / Guardian must remain in attendance on base at all times.
