Discover Sailing

Sailing is a fun, safe, accessible and affordable sport that welcomes participation from people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities. There are many different ways to get started in sailing through Discover Sailing and a range of opportunities for you to continue sailing at clubs as you develop your skills, experience and confidence.

Sailing clubs can be found on the coast, rivers and inland lakes in some spectacular locations around the country. There are nearly 400 sailing clubs around Australia with more than 60,000 registered club members and 100,000 people regularly participating in the sport.

You don’t need to own a boat to enjoy sailing. There are clubs that provide boats and boat owners looking for crew. You don’t need to be a member to get started in sailing because all the Discover Sailing Programs are accessible for people who are not members of clubs.

About Clubs

Clubs offer the perfect platform and infrastructure to get you out on the water to discover sailing.

Most clubs have a Discover Sailing Host who will welcome you to the club, answer any questions, and explain the various sailing activities that are available.
