SailPass is an Australian Sailing initiative to encourage new people to give sailing a try before committing to annual club membership or a training course.

SailPass is a flexible, temporary membership that allows people to discover sailing in a fun, safe and affordable way.

It is also a fantastic way to have a great day out and learn new skills. It’s aimed at individuals, friends, families or work colleagues. And it’s a great way to enjoy the sailing lifestyle in some amazing locations – and all at a sailing club near them.

SailPass gives people the opportunity to try sailing a number of times and allows them to get the feel for a club before doing a course or becoming a member.

There is no need to own a boat or even know how to sail, as experienced sailors will take people aboard their boats to try their hand at setting the sails, taking the helm or simply coming along for the ride.
