More details

Have you ever dreamed of being a skipper and setting sail into the horizon? In this 2 day, 1 night Private Sailing Course, have a tantalizing taste of life at sea and get one step closer to your dream. You will learn the basics of sailing a sailboat and spend the night on board!

On Day 1 of this Experience, you will set sail from the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) at 9:30 am to either Repulse Bay or Sai Kung. Under the good hands of a certified instructor from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), you will experience the exhilaration of sailing a yacht and:

  • Be introduced to the various parts of the yacht and their functions
  • Learn basic knots and ropework
  • Experience steering a yacht under power and on all points of sail
  • Learn how to handle the sails
  • Be aware of yacht safety and equipment

Along the way, enjoy the luxury facilities on board and beautiful views of Hong Kong’s waters as you move full-sail ahead. The evening will be spent moored at a yacht club for dinner. Have a glass of wine on the deck before falling asleep to the lull of the waves. You will return to the RHKYC by 4:30 pm the next day.

At the end of the course, you will receive the RYA Start Yachting Course Completion Certificate and will be ready to set sail for greater destinations!
