Learn to Sail

Sailing is a fun, safe, accessible and affordable sport that welcomes participation from people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities.

There are many different ways to get started in sailing and a range of opportunities for you to continue sailing at our club as you develop your skills, experience and confidence.

Mount Martha Yacht Club is an accredited Discover Sailing Centre, and we offer accredited courses delivered by qualified instructors. You can register for a course with no prior sailing experience, and you do not need to be a club member.

What to expect from your Discover Sailing course:

  • a small group of participants with a similar level of experience
  • a participant pack containing resources to facilitate your development
  • qualified instructors
  • boats and lifejackets provided
  • no special clothing required

Junior Learn to Sail
