More sailing lessons for children at Phuket Yacht Club

Phuket Yacht Club

Phuket Yacht Club There is an opportunity for children, between the ages of 8-12 years,  new to sailing, to take part in a series of sailing lessons at Phuket Yacht Club over four consecutive Sundays from 9am-12 noon

  • 16 January
  • 23  January
  • 30 January
  • 6  February

** If you can sail and are keen to help assist and rig and pack away boats please let me know.

The children will follow the Australian National Small Boat Sailing Scheme; Basic Skills 1.

The purpose of the units are to:

  1. Introduce children to personal and group safety before going afloat
  2. Provide children with an opportunity to explore the limits of the boat and become  familiar with the craft
  3. Teach children how to rig the boat
  4. Introduce children to the basics of sailing allowing them to explore the boat controls.

On the 16th January the children who took part in the last sailing session can have an extra sailing practice starting at lunchtime. Please RSVP if you are interested.

Storm, who is an experienced sailor and has taught children sailing at Darwin Sailing Club, will teach the course. She has Australian instructor credentials. There will also be a committee member with a safety boat  assisting each morning.

We ask for a donation of 1500 Baht per child for the four weeks or 3000 Baht for non members.Children will need to bring suncream, water bottle, rash shirt, lunch and snacks.


If you are interested please get back to me as soon as possible and I can forward more details. Numbers will be limited to the first students who reserve places.

Thank you
