Learn sailing and boating skills at SailTime Hobart
Sailtime Hobart provides a range of training to both new and existing members on your own SailTime Hobart Yacht. SailTime Hobart collaborating with Derwent SailIng Squadron RYA Training Centre and SailTime Training provide RYA/YA certificated courses.
Additionally, we provide a SailTime Members a number of experience days that will help you brush up on certain skills – whether you are a complete novice or an experienced sailor, SailTime Hobart has a training options for you, your fellow sailors or group.
To enable you as a member or owner-member to sail as your own skipper we require you to have at minimum to have passed the SailTime Induction, possess a Marine and Safety Tasmania MAST(or interstate) Boat Licence and VHF radio licence. SailTime Members should aim to complete the RYA/YA day Skipper qualification (theory and practical ). We strongly believe that this standard is the minimum that will enable you to feel confident in handling the boat and to enjoy your sailing with family and friends.
The ensuing professionalism of your sailing also helps to avoid unnecessary boating incidents that might otherwise result in the damage of the boat, spoiling the enjoyment of the SailTime experience for you and for others. Also, the owner-member knows that their boat is being sailed by select and competent members who undoubtedly will become seafaring friends.
Whilst you are working towards your RYA/YA day Skipper qualification you can, of course, still sail. However, it is a requirement that you have onboard someone, guest or instructor, of day Skipper standard or higher.
One of the benefits of SailTime is that you are able to use your sailing time to enjoy instruction on your own yacht rather than in a group situation onboard a basic and unfamiliar sailing school training boat.
Through the Derwent Sailing Squadron RYA/YA sailing schools we are able to provide you with professional quality training on your yacht to help you become a more confident skipper, regardless of your initial standard. Our programme gives you the flexibility to have a Sailing Instructor or Yachtmaster Instructor onboard for one-to-one tuition, group tuition, or simply as a companion to help build your confidence on a new boat.
