Southport Yacht Club’s Kids Sailing lessons are a great way to introduce the kids from ages 7-17 to the great sport of sailing.

Absolutely no experience is required, the kids will enjoy a sail under the supervision of Southport Yacht Club’s qualified instructors within Expo’s ‘on-water interactive zone’ – an area specifically set aside for people to experience a vast array of water-based activities.

The boats used are X3 dinghies and can allocate anywhere between 2-4 kids per boat depending on weather conditions and every individual’s skills to ensure maximum enjoyment and safety out on the water.

Bring along some clothes that you don’t mind getting wet, closed shoes and excitement to go out for a sail!

If your kids love sailing and want to progress forward, ask one of Southport Yacht Club’s instructors and they will be able to direct your kids on their right sailing pathway!

All kids will also receive a free Funsail pass to redeem at either Main Beach or Hollywell Sailing Club.
