Learn to sail in the Whitsundays with Sunsail

Imagine trying to catch the wind in such a way to take you to a deserted island from where it is just you and your friends sipping pina coladas and watching the hues of the sunset. Sailing can bring you this freedom to escape from everyday life with friends and family.

Sunsail can set you on the course to find your very own tropical island when you learn to sail with them in any of their sailing school locations including Australia, Thailand, Croatia, Greece and the British Virgin Islands. And not only do you get a certificate but you also get a great holiday on the water.
Sunsail’s Australian sailing school based on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays is the perfect place to learn to catch the wind. There are sheltered whits-sml_0seas, great sailing conditions and untouched beaches.  The tidal range here is up to four metres giving you a tidal endorsement, and winds are pretty reliable which is ideal for developing your skills. The life under the sea is legendary and although you will not visit the outer reef during your course, it is definitely worth a visit for a spot of snorkelling.
Sunsail offers a fully comprehensive range of sailing courses, designed to cater to every level of ability and previous experience. Our yachts accommodate up to five passengers, making it ideal for families, couples or individuals. Our courses cover everything from the basics of boat handling to advanced sailing skills that you’ll need to master to gain professional qualifications that are recognised the world over. Whatever your level of experience, we have the right sailing course for you.
Courses available in the Whitsundays:
• RYA Competent Crew Course - Level 1 for those with no experience
• RYA Day Skipper Practical Course - Level 2 for competent sailors
• RYA Coastal Skipper Practical Course - Level 3 for advanced or expert sailors
Each of Sunsail’s sailing schools is home to a fleet of modern, well-maintained yachts designed to provide our students with the best possible environment in which to learn new skills and brush up on old ones.
What makes Sunsail Sailing Schools different to the rest is the passion that we bring to our teaching. All Sunsail instructors are RYA qualified and their mission in life is to get you out on to the water and experiencing the incomparable thrills of sailing for yourself. Once you’ve mastered the basics, they’ll be ready to take you onto whatever level you want to reach, providing you with the skills you’ll need to be able to sail safely wherever in the world you want to go.
