SailPass

SailPass is an initiative of Australian Sailing to get new people to try sailing before committing to annual club membership or course.

SailPass is a flexible pass that allows people to discover sailing in a fun, safe and affordable way.

It is also a fantastic way to have a great day out and learn new skills. It's aimed at individuals, friends, families or work colleagues. And it's a great way to enjoy the sailing lifestyle in some amazing locations - and all at a sailing club near them.

SailPass gives people the opportunity to try sailing a number of times, plus it allows them to get the feel for a club before doing a course or becoming a member.

There is no need to own a boat or even know how to sail, as experienced sailors will take people aboard their boats where people can help set the sails, take the helm or simply come along for the ride.
