      Sydney Private Sailing



Sydney Private Sailing is an AYF Accredited Sailing School which specialises in sailing courses for women.  By learning to sail with a female instructor, you can be confident you will learn to sail or enjoy a social sail in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

Sydney Harbour Sailing - a fun way to get together with other mums while the kids are at school to celebrate a birthday or for a Christmas get together

Whilst men are very welcome on midweek Social Sailing, three quarters of the  midweek regulars are women, many of whom are expats making the most of what Sydney has to offer as they know their time in Sydney is limited.

Sailing school student ages vary from 18 - 80 and level of fitness doesn't matter at all.  Annie, the owner operator of Sydney Private Sailing, believes sailing should be fun and comfortable.  There are even nail files on board incase you accidentally break a nail pulling on the ropes!  Sailing is hungry work so coffee and tim tams are a feature of sailing with Annie.  

Annie teaches women how to compensate for any lack of strength by correct posture and technique.  She can also show their partners how their helming can make winching easier for girlfriends and wives.

Whilst there is no obligation to take Sailing lessons if you do Social Sails, sailing lessons with will help you understand what you are doing.  Then, when the boat heels over, you will know how to control it.  Don't let yourself be relegated to pouring the drinks and making the sandwiches.

Get into the habit of checking the Boating Weather Forecast (see Weather) before going sailing so you know what conditions to expect - hopefully not the conditions in the photos!
