About the event
The Boatshed is located at the northern end of the beautiful Albert Park Lake, in between Albert Park Yacht Club and Albert Sailing Club. On the day, qualified instructors will guide the group through learning parts of the boat, how to set up a boat, and then the fundamentals of sailing the boat on the lake. During the on-water component of the session, the instructors supervise and give direction while on powerboats. The lake is a great place to learn how to sail, as it is much more sheltered than the bay and it is only 1 metre deep.
Sessions are weather dependent, so if on the day it is unsafe to run a session due to wind or lightning it will have to be rescheduled.
We will be sailing in both Pacers and Hansas. Pacers can have individuals sail with 3 people in the boat however for those who are less confident, they also have Hansas which is suited for individuals of all abilities. Onesocial staff will be scattered across all boats with the participants for extra support and assistance.
Lunch will be provided on the day by onesocial staff.What you need to bring to sailing:
