Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron is pleased to provide the young generations with a fun and safe introduction to sailing and other water activities via the OutThere program.

This program is aimed at 12-17-year-olds who would like to try sailing and powerboating.

Our sailing programs are run in an array of 1-3 person dinghies and keelboats and are specifically designed to allow young sailors to have fun, make new friends, and learn new skills in an encouraging and safe environment.

Why OutThere Sailing?

Having fun while experiencing sailing.

Socialising with friends and making new ones.

Learning how to sail in an inclusive environment.

Developing life-long friendships and learning team skills.

Being with your age group.

The program is about having fun, spending time with friends while learning new skills and is delivered by qualified Australian Sailing Instructors.

OutThere Sailing also focuses on the social element of a club environment, simply enjoying time spent with peers whether that be on the water, on the beach, or in the clubhouse.

Following the completion of OutThere, participants are encouraged to join RMYS junior fleet where we focus on improving their sailing skills.
