Learn to Sail – Sailing School Sydney
Based on Sydney Harbour, Liquid Edge Sailing School offers courses from beginner “learn to sail” to advanced topics such as “docking and berthing” and “heavy weather sailing”. Our courses are modular in nature, they can be taken on their own or added together to form an International Yacht Training certificate, recognised by accredited sailing schools and charter companies around the world.
Learn to Sail on a Catamaran or Yacht – we have both, your choice. Both handle differently, so best to choose your preferred yacht style. If you intend to charter a yacht in Australia or overseas then look no further.
Our Competent Crew program involves two days of sailing lessons on Sydney Harbour learning the basics of sail handling and steering. No prior sailing experience is required. You will learn on our 35 ft Bavaria cruiser – racer, and at the end you will have the confidence to step onto another yacht and know what all the parts are for!
Intro to Sailing Mono Hull
Our Introduction to Sail course involves two days of sailing lessons on Sydney Harbour, usually on a weekend. Learn the basics of sail handling, wind angles and steering. No prior sailing experience is required. You will learn on our 35 or 37 foot Bavaria cruising yacht.
This course is designed for those wanting to charter a yacht or Catamaran. The 5 day course is required for those wishing to obtain the IYT ICC for European countries or the IYT Bareboat Certificate for USA and Canadian waters. We run courses on either Mono Hull or Catamaran. The IYT ICC is fast becoming the most useful certificate for charter companies around the world. This is an intensive entry level course designed to give you an all round knowledge of sailing, mooring, anchoring, navigation and other key skills.
Intro to Sailing Catamaran
Our Introduction to Sail Catamaran course involves two days of sailing lessons on Sydney Harbour. Learn the basics of sail handling for a Catamaran, wind angles and steering. Also covered are the techniques of using 2 engines. No prior experience is required. Our training vessel is a Seawind 1000 Cruising Catamaran.
Private training is available to groups, couples or individuals. Training is customised to your needs.
Generally used for couples who may want to involve children, small groups wanting a refresher course before a charter or for those considering the purchase of a yacht.
Docking or berthing a boat, whether in a pen, alongside a floating pontoon can be stressful for both skippers and crew.
Docking techniques are relatively easy to learn, once learnt practice makes perfect, this course sets you up with useful techniques to bring a yacht into any berthing situation without stress.
Most importantly we ensure safety of the yacht and crew are paramount.
