Vision and mission 

We want children growing up in touch with the real world, able to deal with the elements and confident in their ability to deal with shifts in wind and other adversities in life. 

We aim to be a fun and exciting learn-to-sail option for juniors. We want to attract children to the sport of sailing and coach them through to full competence.


For parents, we will deliver a convenient, trusted and accredited program, while offering options for getting involved in the sport themselves.


About GFS

Greenwich Flying Squadron is a rare gem in the Sydney sailing scene, hosting both dinghy sailing for juniors and yacht racing for adults.


Tucked away in the entrance to the Lane Cove River, our location offers a relatively sheltered location for beginners with easy access to the open harbour as students develop their skills. 

We are one of the very few clubs in Sydney catering to the needs of both dinghy and yacht sailors. This combination provides a rare opportunity for the whole family to get involved in sailing.
