Sailing at Hunters Hill Sailing Club

Sailing at Hunters Hill Sailing Club is designed to be family friendly and inclusive of a range of skill levels catering for those new to sailing through our Australian Sailing Discover Sailing Centre to those who have been sailing competitively all their lives and are seeking the challenge of a competitive fleet racing environment and of course those in-between who enjoy just getting out into the elements on our beautiful harbour and the camaraderie and satisfaction from getting around the course in front of your nearest rival.

While the Discover Sailing Centre operates all year round the focus of Sailing at the club is the racing season which commences in spring and goes through the summer months, concluding in early Autumn. This is supported by year round training in preparation of the season complimentary to the many various regettas which sailors are encouraged to attend with assistance from the Club. Information on many of these events can be found in the Events section.  The club sailing calender is available below.

Racing at the Club is controlled by the Commodore (who acts as or appoints an Race Officer of the Day) and the Sailing Committee. The Race Director provides guidance to class secretaries and assists the Commodore with race management. Class Secretaries are responsible for administering and promoting their respective classes and the Club generally. Further information on Racing at the club can be found in the Club Racing section and information on the classes sailed at Hunters Hill is available via the links on this page.

Hunters Hill Sailing Club is a family orientated club and an accredited Discover Sailing Centre that offers courses and opportunities for all skill levels from beginners to the experienced sailor. The club actively encourages participation and is committed to passing on the skills needed to sail a boat as well as the sportsmanship that goes with it.

We have an option to suit everyone when it comes to learning to love of sailing. Whether you are after a short learn to sail experience or a longer learn to sail course, the team of qualified instructors can help.  It is even easier to get into sailing at Hunters Hill Sailing Club. With very little cost or commitment, members can enjoy the marvels of sailing.

For our youngest sailors aged 7-10 years of age, we have a free three session “Experience Sailing” program to try out sailing for fun before you take the plunge and join our Club and its’ Learn to Sail Programs.  Most months we have 10 slots available for either a Saturday course or a Sunday course of Try-Sail. Once you’ve had a go, at no expense at all, if you’d like to carry on we would welcome you to the Club as a member (with mum or dad as a member too) and you will join in with a small group of sailors just like you, learning the skills and gaining experience to ensure a life time of sailing adventures. You can register for this free sailing experience on our Events page – noting that places are limited each month!!

Our philosophy around teaching sailing is that every sailor learns at a different rate and in a different way – we don’t pass you along to the next level of learning until we are sure you are “full to the brim” of the correct techniques, experience and skills!!  And, because your sailing lessons are included in your annual membership, it doesn’t cost you any more if things take a little bit longer to click, or if you are a “natural” and you proceed through the lessons at a faster clip.
