At SSCBC we have three main pathways in our Sailing Program with both providing further sailing opportunities for Junior and Youth members.

SSCBC conducts a Learn to Sail Program over the summer holidays and throughout the year which is named “SSCBC Sail and Play”, offering Levels 1, 2, 3 and Pacers. This reputable program is a Yachting Victoria and Yachting Australia accredited learn to sail program. It is fun, fast and aimed at participants from the age of 7 who are after some great summer holiday fun with friends and family. Adults and teenagers also have the ability to discover sailing in our 2 person Pacers.

Following the successful introduction of our coaching initiative, SSCBC provides a comprehensive and exciting coaching and racing program for the benefit of all of sailors each season. Designed to cater for sailors of all ages and skill levels, our Learn to Sail programs and Junior & Youth Coaching initiatives successfully capture the needs of our many dinghy sailors while providing opportunities for all of our members to compete in the Clubs racing program. The Club is committed to further enhance its team of coaches and has created the position of Head Coach and Development Manager, whose focus is to continue to develop the quality and delivery of our programs while adopting the latest and best practises available. All of our coaching and training programs from beginner to elite level are structured to meet the various requirements of sailors who wish to continually improve their skills or for those who wish to simply enjoy the sport of sailing.

Our team of dedicated coaches are all committed to providing an inclusive, enjoyable and fun experience to all who wish to participate in the many and varied opportunities available throughout the season and beyond.

I commend the SSCBC sailing program to you and look forward to your participation in what I am sure will be another fabulous season of sailing at the Club.
