Because of the nature of the sport weather conditions can change and be unsuitable. Also facilities in
the form of suitable boats and instructors may also not be available. MPYC make no guarantees as to
availability of facilities on any particular day. The decision to sail is with the Officer of the Day and
with the Instructor.


To enrol in the course you will need to pay the course fee of $235 prior to or at the time of enrolling
which includes one year's membership fees.

You are required to bring warm clothes. We suggest the following:

  • woollen or polyprop gear
  • a windbreaker
  • suitable footwear
  • hat/beanie
  • a change of clothes (especially underwear or swimming togs); and
  • a towel
  • wet suit and buoyancy aid if you have them
  • Life jackets and sunscreen are available

You are welcome to have a shower after the lesson and refreshments in the clubhouse after the on the
water session. 


When to arrive


Please arrive at the stated time, as it is necessary to cover some theory as well as rig the yacht so that
you get the most out of each lesson.
