Learn to Sail

We are pleased to be able to offer a number of wonderful Learn to Sail programs for people of all ages. 

​The Barwon Heads Sailing Association is affiliated with Australian Sailing. Our learn to sail programs are run by qualified AS instructors and BHSA members gain some reciprocal rights when sailing with other clubs or at official AS regattas.

Why learn to sail on the Barwon? 

The beautiful Barwon mouth provides ideal conditions for learning:

  • Relatively shallow water.

  • Shelter from the strongest winds.

  • Great beaches on both sides to watch the action and have a picnic.

  • Tides, currents, mangroves and sand bars to make exploring interesting.

  • Challenging races for those who wish to join us.

  • All courses run by Australian Sailing using state-of-the-art, fully insured boats and qualified instructors.

  • COVID safe and child safe protocols for all courses


Why not come give it a try?

Please note

COVID restrictions have meant that we have been unable to run some of our sailing programs, but they will be back as soon as circumstances permit. Please check back over the coming months for updates.
