Drummoyne Sailing Club Sailing Academy is now offering Keelboat Courses – available to book now.

Recently added to our Discover Sailing Centre the Start Crewing and Start Helming courses are the introductory keelboat courses in the Australian Sailing Pathways program. We have been generously given the use of of the RS21 small keelboat by the Australian Distributor – Sailing Raceboats – and are using this ideal training boat to spearhead our new course offering.

Several of our experienced Dinghy Instructors have now completed the Keelboat Instructor course and are Australian Sailing accredited to deliver these courses. We have scheduled both courses and are also able to run these courses for groups of 3-4 people at any other time that may be convenient – great for a new crew, a family group or colleagues from work.

These courses will also be useful for regular DSC Twilight yachts crew who would like to further their experience and acquire those additional skills that may allow you to get more involved in racing – or take the next step to helming.

The RS21 is an ideal training boat – safe and stable, light and easy to handle, and with exciting performance. We have also raced the boat in recent West Harbour series and it has performed very well.

For more information and links to our current course bookings, go to the Keelboat Program page on our club’s website.
