Sailing Info

Sailing can be a very rewarding sport for the individual or family.  Yes, all the family can become involved in sailing, be it on or off shore, it can be as little or as much involvement as you like.  Sailing starts from 6 years of age upwards, it’s up to you to decide which days to sail and when to stop. 

First Day this season and it was great

TASC has produced numerous champions at State, National and World level.  There are opportunities to meet many people as you have the choice to experience other sailing club regatta’s, explore the various waters under a variety of weather conditions, and travel to new places forming friendships that can last forever (great excuse for holidays). 

We welcome land-lovers and sailors with zero experience to those who are experienced, especially people who are willing to share their knowledge and wisdom and a willingness to broaden that knowledge.  Remember; we can NEVER know it all.  Because TASC is an Amateur Club all day to day running of the club is up to the members.  

TASC members are all volunteers who are friendly, helpful and supportive of each other, no matter what class of boat you want to sail, everyone is always welcome.  

All members are asked to attend at least two working bees a year and offer assistance in an area that suits your skills and interests whenever possible. This can be; manning of the three rescue boats, maintenance to the sail boats and their accessories, clubhouse maintenance, fundraising, canteen rostering, BBQ’s, etc.   

Our fleet is ever-changing and currently consists of;

  • PJs for the Learn To Sail juniors (2up per boat)
  • Junior sabots (2up per boat, ages 6-11) * Senior sabots (1up per boat, ages 11-16)
  • Flying ants (2 per boat, ages 9-16) 
  • MG/MGB (Seniors with some Junior Crews)
  • Skates (2 senior sailors) 
  • Miscellaneous (Bring along whatever class of dinghy-your always welcome )
