Sailing Courses by Club Sail's International Yacht Training


Club Sail’s popular overnight adventures combine learning to sail, and advancing your sailing skills, in a fun, safe setting.

The inshore weekend courses provide you with many hours of practical, on water quality training, on modern yachts with time to enjoy healthy and nutritious meals. After a full day of sailing lessons, you'll overnight onboard, anchored in a secluded cove. Wake to a morning in paradise, with a hot cooked breakfast and a picturesque view of the Kuringai National Park waterfalls, before sailing off on your second day of adventure learning. Cast off this weekend with the introduction of the basic principles in Learn to Sail and build your experience with the International Crew Certificate and International Bareboat Skipper training courses. So if you plan to head offshore to charter a yacht in New Caledonia, go sailing in Vanuatu, or charter in the Med, you'll want to plot your course towards the International Yachtmaster's bareboat skipper's certificate and save money with one of our special all inclusive package programmes.

Club Sail was the first and remains the premier Australian Partner of International Yacht Training Inc. (IYT), the world's leading provider of yacht training services - both recreational and professional. IYT provides a stardardised approach to Yacht Training globally and has 87 partnership schools in 25 countries . As a result, 25 countries now accept IYT's commercial and recreational Yachtmaster Certificates of Competency. These countries include 16 Red Ensign countries, Ireland, New Zealand, Marshall Islands, Australia, Luxembourg, Bahamas, and Lebanon. No other Yacht Training certification in the world has such global acceptance.

One of the primary reasons for international recognition is the high quality of the maritime training courses and the professional requirements for teaching them. Maritime officials recognise this competence and graduates of IYT can be assured their qualifications will be happily accepted everywhere.

Club Sail Courses range from introductory lessons right up to offshore professional captain on superyachts. For the aspiring professional crew or skipper of an international Super Yacht, we can help you obtain certification as superyacht crew in our professional series of International Yacht Training (IYT) courses.

For both sets of courses you choose the pace you feel comfortable with, whether you prefer to learn at weekends or to take an intensive course over a number of weeks. All your sailing courses and sea time will be logged in your own sailing logbook, becoming an invaluable record as you explore other parts of the world through yacht charters, with your own yacht, or as crew on a superyacht.

Club Sail manages a fleet of modern high tec sailing and motor yachts that are in full Waterways survey, to suit any sailing course or level you aspire to. Our instructors are fully accredited, highly professional and experienced.
