RYS Sailing Courses & Camps


We have decided to change the format of our sailing this season, and will not be running a pre-Christmas course.  However, we are offering one-on-one tuition for anyone interested in developing their sailing skills. 


Our regular club sailing will be held on Sunday mornings, between now and Easter.  Our popular twilight sailing will also start in the first week of January 2017 and run until the end of February on Wednesday evenings.  All our supervised sailing sessions include on water safety boats, beach support and are run weather permitting.

Raymond Island Camp

10 - 13 March


The time is drawing very near for our annual pilgrimage to Raymond Island, Paynesville.  A weekend of family fun and frivolity and of course SAILING.

The weekend runs on the Labour Day Long Weekend.  That's just over a week away!!!  For those of you that haven't been before:
  • Raymond Island is about a 3-4 hour drive from Mt Eliza
  • Most people arrive on the Friday evening and depart around lunch time on Monday
  • The event is self catering with a large communal kitchen, although we aim to share dinner on Saturday night which is usually a themed event. Theme to be revealed !?!
  • First sail is Saturday morning with the aim to sail twice a day - conditions permitting
  • Non-sailors can enjoy other water activities such as kayaking, windsurfing and swimming.  We have even had families bring their own motorboat.
  • There are lots of opportunities for other activities like bike riding, walking, fishing and coffee. The sky is the limit.
