Sailing School

Learn to sail, learn to windsurf, progress your skills or even try wingfoiling with Nelson Yacht Club’s Sailing School this summer!

If you have ever seen us all out on the water and thought about giving it a go, then give us a call. We organise regular Tasters, Learn to Sail courses, progressive training, for both adults and children.

The team will introduce you to the sport in a fun and supportive learning environment. Courses and training are based on guidelines set out by Yachting New Zealand.

There are also social supervised sailing sessions where you can put your newfound skills into practise.
