Sail Training in Adelaide, South Oz

Hi all, I want to get into sailing and hopefully long range cruising. Taking a long term view of it – get trained etc. Can members from Adelaide South Oz or elsewhere please advise what they consider the best sail training is, e.g. for cruising?


CYCSA has marine radio, coastal navigation, safety courses (sea survival and general safety day).
Adelaide Sailing Club has a number of courses from a basic level through to racing skills.
Academy of Sail has 2 day ‘competent crew’ course plus a 4 hour ‘night sail’ course.


Perhaps somewhere else?


Any suggestions would be most appreciated.


Cheers, kjames

Depends on yr age. If under 40, learn to sail racing dinghies; you'll learn more there than you'll ever pick up on a big boat and that knowledge will make big boat sailing a doddle (well, almost). Largs Bay SC (or Brighton & Seacliff SC if you're down that end of the coast) have good training programs.

If you're past that age, go to the Squadron; they have good adult training on keel boats.

THanks again At Sea. Over 40 but have kids who might be interested. I didnt know Squadron did training - that's sounds good. Cheers
