Discover Sailing

Sunday 29 October 2023* - Lakeside Pakenham

Free Discover Sailing Day

Every year, the Lakeside Sailing Club - Pakenham organises a dedicated and Free Discover Sailing Day for all members of the community.

On this day, you'll have the option to

  • go out for a short sail with an experienced sailor,

  • try kayaking with our 2 tandem kayaks,

  • discover the fun and excitement of our sport,

  • or just meet-n-greet our club members.

There is something for the whole family; adults, seniors and even kids as young as six years old can sail, when accompanied by a parent or guardian. People of all abilities are welcome as our club offers accessible facilities for people with a disability (Access boats & hoist).

Our Discover Sailing Day is free to attend and all boats & safety equipment will be provided by the club. When registered for the day, Australian Sailing even covers insurance.

We're looking forward showing you just how fun, safe, accessible, and affordable sailing is. Last year, we had over 110 visitors and we're going for more this year!

Additionally, we do recommend you printing & completing an insurance Registration Form at home and bring it along to to ensure that you, and your family members, are covered from an insurance perspective.
