Sail training at Allsail


Sailing Courses


Allsail is an Australian Sailing Discover Sailing Centre and affiliated club and we teach sailing on beautiful Pittwater, Broken Bay and beyond.


Initially you will train on Allsail's fleet of new generation 2013 Bavaria B/ONE and Force 24 trainer racers - ideal yachts for learning. No boring classrooms at Allsail  - training is done on the yachts.

We teach the AS Keelboat program which includes Start Crewing, Start Helming, Skipper, Spinnaker and Racing courses.


Courses run each weekend and some Fridays - and dates you attend are flexible depending on your commitments. Courses include extra club sessions so you can practise what you've learned. These may be on our larger yachts - maybe even join in a race!


Allsail is also a partner school of International Yacht Training Worldwide - the world's leading training organisation for big boat recreational sailing with over 200 schools worldwide.


Allsail teaches Introductory, International Crew and International Bareboat Skipper courses.


IYT training is on our 12 metre cruising yachts - courses are generally 2 day overnight onboard weekends and run monthly - plus home study theory components. 


Candidates who pass the International Bareboat Skipper course automatically qualify for issue of the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) which is required for chartering in many parts of the world.

Call us for more details or to book.


If you're not sure which course is for you then book a 3 hour on water assessment for only $69.

In a fun environment a qualified skipper/ instructor will assess your skill level and we can then advise which course is right for you  - and at the same time you can assess whether you like Allsail.

And the cost of the assessment comes off your course cost when you sign up! So you get an extra session for FREE


Joining Allsail Sailing Club is then the perfect way to get that important practice needed to make full use of your new skills.

Offshore and Overseas Cruises

Allsail conducts weekend  offshore cruises and mile maker cruises for those wanting offshore miles and night sailing experience. 


Allsail also hosts overseas sailing flotillas in destinations such as the Mediterranean, Phuket and Canada.


In 2015 it was Phuket for 7 days in March 2015 for the fun Bay Regatta and some cruising.

Then the Caribbean for 2 weeks in May 2015 - Plus Croatia for 2 weeks in June 2015.

We prefer Bavaria yachts 40 to 50ft for these adventure cruises.

In 2016 we were back in Phuket in February - and in June Turkey sailing the ancient sites of the turquoise coast for 14 days. Late June we continued in Turkey for a combined resort and gulet (100ft crewed, luxury traditional motor yacht) adventure.


In 2017 it was Phuket regatta racing in February, Spain's Balearic islands May/June and a combined resort and 92ft gulet cruising in Croatia.


For 2018 think the Bay regatta Phuket early February - then Greece in may/June for 14 days followed by 14 days cruising Canada's west coast.


While these trips have no formal instructional goal, it is the adventure, cameraderie of the Allsail crews and experience of sailing on large luxury yachts in exotic foreign destinations that help all those that take part to become better sailors.
Gear you need
You need sunglasses - ones that won't fall off - sunblock cream, sweater/jacket. Just wear ordinary sports clothes such as jeans or shorts, T-shirt etc. You will need soft soled shoes that won't slip on a wet deck (No black soles). Tennis shoes are ideal.
The yachts are all equipped with safety gear.
Our office is on the Ferry Wharf at Church Point. Parking can be difficult just like it is anywhere on the waterfront. Leave plenty of time to park, particularly on Sundays. There is a Council carpark about 100 metres from our office or stop in the 5 minute zone outside - drop off your gear and ask us for alternatives.
