Try Sailing

The best way to learn the ropes if you’re a budding young sailor is to start early. And that means jumping aboard one of Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club’s dinghies during SailFest Newcastle.

Qualified instructors will be based adjacent to Honeysuckle Hotel from 9.00am-12.00pm on both Saturday April 15 & Sunday April 16.

They’ll be onboard, showing how it’s done. And best of all, it’s absolutely free!

Pre-booking isn’t required as we’ll have a numbering system running when you arrive on site.  The try-sailing sessions will be approximately 15 minutes on-water.

What to Wear
  • Swimmers, boardshort & rash-shirt
  • Enclosed shoes that can get wet (beach shoes or old sandshoes)
  • Hat & sun-cream
  • A lifejacket will be supplied
