GLYC is an accredited Discover Sailing Centre, the only one on the Gippsland Lakes. Each Spring, Summer and Autumn School Holidays, we have our own instructors along with Australian Sailing instructors come to GLYC to run Tackers 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 completing your registration early. Unfortunately Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club cannot run any school holiday programs without a sufficient quota to make it financially viable.
