Greenwich Flying Squadron runs Learn to Sail courses for children ages ~ 8 to 14 yrs. Our fun program teaches beginners to sail a small boat and, as they progress, learn to race and ultimately compete.


 Our program is designed to ensure kids enjoy the whole Learn-to-Sail experience. It's more than just sailing. Its about helping and supporting each other as we progress through each level.


We run a number of open days in the lead up to the program start for prospective students to try it out and see if sailing is for them. Experience juniors or coaches take kids out on the water and we explain the whole program. 

We start with baby steps and slowly build your child's confidence in venturing into ever stronger winds and farther afield. By the end of the program your child will have learned more than a skill, they will be better at facing life's challenges.


 As your child skills improve we progress to sailing a triangle course, then informal non-timed club races, to friendly practice races with nearby clubs. For those that want to, we travel to championship events around the state.

What you will learn

From ropes and rigging, to tacking and gybing, our courses take beginners from their first toe in the water to tactical wizards.
