GLYC is an a Tackers endorsed Discover Sailing Centre. Each September, January and Easter School Holidays instructors from Australian Sailing are at GLYC to run learn to sail programs for both kids aged 7-12 (in the club’s Ozi Optis) and for Teens / Adults (in the Club’s pacers). School Holiday Program places are limited, so we recommend getting your registration in early (payment can be made closer to the date).
