Princess Royal Sailing Club

Princess Royal Sailing Club is registered with Australian Sailing Inc., as a training centre and offers AS accredited courses for small boat handling and dinghy sailing. However, for over 10 years our training staff have also designed and run a large variety of ‘Sail-Learning-Experiences’ to suit the needs of individual schools. Typically PRSC has issued certificates to 300 year 6 to 8 students, from 6 schools, both local and metropolitan, per year.

The format of the Sail-Learning-Experiences’ ranges from ‘Sail-Learning-Adventures’ where groups of 18 year 8 students (boys and girls) are taught the basics of rigging, sailing and survival in a 4 m x 2 sail, centre board dinghy. The on-shore training (approx 90 minutes) is followed by 90 minutes in which the ‘Adventurers’ in groups of 3 sail their own dinghy for about 90 minutes. During the on-water sailing/capsizing/sailing etc., the adventure is closely supervised by PRSC staff in club rescue/training boats. All of this fun and learning in just 3 hrs!

At the other end of the spectrum is ‘Sail-Learning-Training’ where schools have an expectation that their students will finish the course with demonstrable skills in rigging and sailing a 3 person dinghy in a range of sailing conditions (wind & waves) with little or no assistance. In these courses students as young as year 6 complete 25 hours of intensive training (on-shore & on-water) over 5 days. Again the yacht of choice is the club’s fleet of six GP 14 dinghies. The skills acquired include the language of sailing, rigging the boat appropriately for the current and forecast wind and waves, steering and trimming the sails as a team to successfully navigate a course that requires all the standard manoeuvres of tacking, gybing, sailing hard on the wind and running before the wind.

All the ‘Sail-Learning-Experiences’ designed and run by PRSC provide the opportunity for:

Personal development
Team Work
Responsibility (collective and individual)
Concise and rapid communication

Knowledge
Physics of sail power
Geography and forecasting of weather (particularly wind and waves)
Science of tides, waves and wind
History – Fredrickstown/Albany, early explorers to Princess Royal Harbour (Vancouver, Flinders, Baudin, Darwin)
