We offer a large range of courses throughout the year suitable for a beginner or experienced sailors and motorboat users. SailTrain is a reputable Discover Sailing (AS) training centre with highly experienced and qualified instructors.
All of our SailTrain courses can be purchased as a Gift Voucher so that you can surprise someone for their birthday, Christmas or other big event.
You don’t have to buy a specific course on a specific date, you can simply buy a voucher of a certain value to be used towards a course of their choice and timing. Or if you do want to buy it for a specific course, we can do that too! Most of the courses are held at nights or weekends.
All of the courses we offer are listed here on our website. Some of them may not currently have specific dates listed for them. If the recipient is interested in a course that doesn’t have a date listed, they just need to contact our SailTrain Administrator who will work with them to find a suitable course date for the future.
