Free Summer Sailing Opportunities

Victorian teens can give some new water sports a go and get active at the same time as part of the OutThere Sailing program, which offers teens the opportunity to try a variety of water sports including windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and power boat rides. OutThere Sailing offers multi-day programs or one day experiences, all delivered by qualified Australian Sailing instructors. The focus is on fun and social engagement and the program is structured to allow friends to learn together, even if their skill levels are different.

The OutThere Sailing program offers teenagers the opportunity to experience sailing, wind surfing and stand paddle boarding without any previous experience, while having fun with their friends. Participants can bring friends and meet new ones, whilst also learning some valuable life skills such as problem solving, resilience and team working skills.
