OutThere Sailing is an Australian Sailing program aimed at getting 12-17-year old’s active on the water. Qualified Australian Sailing Instructors provide participants with the knowledge needed to get out and have fun with their friends safely from the very first session. Previously known as Start Sailing & Better Sailing this is a new and improved program incorporating Pacers, RS Feva’s, 420s, Paddleboards and more!
OutThere Sailing will give teenagers the flexibility & variety they want in a fun focused setting, whilst still providing them with important life skills. The key aspect of this program is to facilitate a social environment where teenagers are able to cultivate real friendships with other’s from their local area, whilst potentially igniting a love for sailing in the process. Socialisation and fun both on and off the water are paramount; club culture is inclusive of everyone and there is plenty for parents and teenagers to get involved with.
Sailing is a sport that is accessible for everybody, all equipment is provided by RFBYC so all you need to do is show up and have a good time!
