Sailing Academy Gordons Bay

We hold our keelboat sailing sailing lessons at the Gordons Bay Yacht Club on the north eastern shore of False Bay.  The Academy provides safety equipment, life jackets, keelboats & Instructors.

Our focus is on safety and having fun, both on and off the water.  We teach on our L26 and Stadt 23, which allows us to get most of our students sailing the boat in light to moderate breeze, but can also provide the thrill of powering along with three sails up for the more advanced sailors.

We are both World Sailing and South African Sailing accredited as are all of our Instructors and we adhere to the various safety regulations imposed upon us by these bodies, we are also COVID 19 compliant.
