Upon completion of your course all students receive a $200 voucher toward your next course.

Having completed your course why not enjoy regular sailing in some of Australia great sailing destinations by becoming a SailTime member.

All student who complete a competent crew or higher course automatically receive a $400 discount off the SailTime membership joining fee  plus SailTime members rates for all future training.

  • Competent Crew course is for those new to sailing who would like to learn to sail and become active crew members rather than just passengers. Learn to sail while living on board and getting to know the boat. Virtually all the course is hands on. You are the competent crew – without you the sails won't go up and the boat won't be steered.
  • The RYA Day Skipper Practical is for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills. Learn to skipper a short passage with the instructor on hand to give advice and encouragement and ensure your safety. The RYA day skipper practical lets you experience being in charge, taking credit when it all goes well and being responsible when it doesn't.

Special rate for both courses of $1400  payable in three instalments.
