GLYC is a Tackers endorsed Discover Sailing Centre. Each Spring, Summer and Autumn School Holidays, instructors from Australian Sailing come to 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 completing your registration early. Unfortunately Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club will not be running any Autumn Sailing programs for this Easter school holidays. The Club can only run the school holiday programs with a sufficient quota to make it financially viable. We are hopefully running Spring Programs from 27 September through 1 October 2021. Look out in newsletters and the website for any updates of these courses.
