This course is the logical step for someone who has completed the Start Crewing Course as well as those who have been sailing for a while.
The focus is to learn how to helm (steer) a boat around the river. We’ll teach you how to tack and gybe, as well what to do when shortening sail (reefing) and how to steer and make it easier for the crew.

We’ll also show you how to trim sails.
Our instructors are the most experienced in Hobart, and our boat is perfect for showing you the basics.
