Sailing Questions

Not at all. SailCorp can provide a friendly competent and qualified skipper to facilitate your day. Alternatively if you know someone who has relevant sailing experience and skills, invite them along to skipper for you.

We always suggest bring more than you expect you will need. Our vessels have plenty of storage space and its better to have a jumper and swimmers there just in case than regret not bringing them! As our vessels all have white decks, please wear white soled or non-marking soled shoes, (boat shoes and Dunlop volleys are always a safe bet). Don’t forget your sunnies, hat, sunblock and drinking water for those warm days.
Please leave all valuable jewelry, watches etc. at home as items such as these have been known to end up at the bottom of the harbour! Don’t forget your MP3s, CDs or bagpipes if you wish.

Sydney’s weather is mostly fantastic In the unlikely event of showers, there is plenty of room down below on our yachts to avoid the drips. Our vessels also have above deck covers. If the weather is deemed dangerous, SailCorp will reschedule you at no charter cost.
