LEARN TO SAIL
Zeekoe Vlei Yacht Club offers a number of different options for people to learn to sail.
JUNIOR SAIL TRAINING
Calling all children aged 8 to 16 years. Join us every Sunday morning from 09h00 to learn to sail.
Courses run from: January – April
& from: September – end November
Our 3 month courses offer children the opportunity to learn to sail whether a beginner or a “weathered” sailor looking for advanced racing techniques.
The younger children are taught on Optimists and children from about the age of 15 learn to sail on Dabchicks. ZVYC has a number of Optimist dinghies for children to hire – no need to have your own!

Zeekoevlei has produced quite a number of world class yachtsmen, many of whom started out sailing Optimists, and have represented South Africa in international regattas; like Optimist Worlds.
Come and be a part of this wonderful sailing family – the benefits are endless!
