Kid aged 8 did multi sport and aged 11 did the 3 day sailing course. Both loved it! The team is friendly, welcoming and safety aware.

My son had the best camp ever! Everyday he came home with a big smile and great stories what he had done that day. Also great communication and very friendly people.

We had a company offsite at Q-Station and had Manly Sailing entertain our group (of both adults and their kids) for an afternoon. They brought games, the kayaks, helped us coordinate our food and drinks and just overall added great energy! Would recommend as some said the "kayaking soccer match" was the highlight of the weekend away!

Manly Sailing has created a fun and inclusive program that is top-notch. This school is brilliantly run by a fresh and diverse group of knowledgeable sailors. Our son, 11, began at age 6. He's now proficient and learning to race in the Juniors Fleet. We've done Windsurfing, 3-day Holiday Camps, Adventure Camp, Sailing Mums, Kids Levels 1-3, and one day, hopefully, Lasers for the whole family. Our youngest, 8, just started Level One term time and absolutely loves it. He's not sporty and has a few developmental delays and hearing impairment. Watching him thrive in this inclusive and fun environment is as rewarding for me as it is for him. Have I mentioned the location? You can watch your budding sailor from the Skiff Club, Wharf Bar, Hugo's, or enjoy some sand time at the Cove, or ferry watching with a swim in the nets. Bottom line, if you are even *thinking* of sailing and how it might enrich your life you have come to the right place.
