Green Fleet


Green Fleet is the entry level Off The Beach Club coaching and introductory race program for young sailors who have successfully completed a Tackers 3 sailing course (or have been assessed by the Green Fleet Co-ordinator), and who wish to further advance their sailing to competition level.

The safe harbour of Sandringham Yacht Club provides young sailors with the opportunity to extend their sailing experience and build confidence on the water. It’s a great way to meet new friends, practice sailing techniques and to develop an understanding of basic racing rules. Green Fleet is designed to introduce sailors and their families to racing and to what it means to be part of the Sandringham Yacht Club community in a fun and simple way.

At the completion of the Green Fleet program, sailors will be able to either crew in an International Cadet or purchase their own Optimist. They will be encouraged to join in Club racing on Sunday afternoons in the main fleet. There is also the option of leasing one of the club’s boats for a season.
