Description of the current program - see the Newsletter

The School Group Sailing Training runs in two sessions during Spring and Autumn each year. Young people enjoy the introduction to the joys of sailing in a closely supervised and safe environment

Volunteer Trainers


The Learn-to-Sail classes are run by very experienced volunteers who have vast experience with sailing and yachts.

Many of them have their own yachts and sail in local races. All volunteers have Working With Children NSW Accreditation.

The fees for classes at Callala Junior Sailing School are very low because of the use of volunteers for all training. Sponsorship is also very important for supporting the club and its fleets of training vessels.
