Sail BYC Learn to Sail Part 2 – Start Helming (Session 4 of 4)

March 23, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


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.

You’ll also learn how to anchor, a few tricks on how to helm in heavy weather and we’ll show you how to trim sails.

Our instructors are the most experienced in Hobart,  and our training boat is perfect for showing you the basics. BYC are an Australian Sailing fully accredited Discover Sailing Centre and winner of Club of the Year 2021 in the Tasmanian Sailing Awards, so you are in excellent hands!

Course Cost $400.00 includes handbook, log book and 6 months BYC membership. 10% discount for BYC members.

* Please note that the course dates and times are subject to revision/cancellation if minimum numbers are not reached or due to adverse weather events – we will keep you informed 😉
