— Minimum 2 x 2 hour sessions


By car: it is an easy drive up the expressway and exit the Gosford turnoff. The Gosford Sailing Club offers good parking with excellent facilities.

By train: even better, the fast train leaves Central Station every 1/2 hour or so to Gosford Station. The Club is a very short ride away from the station.

Sailing: every year we are delivering boats to Gosford, so let us know if you are keen as every student is welcome!

Delivering the boats back from Gosford after the regatta


We stay in luxurious holiday townhouses on Avoca Beach, on a share basis. Houses are a very convenient 15-minute ride away from the Club.
