Discover Sailing at LSBC

The Loch Sport Boat Club provides a Sail Training Program to promote safe & fun sailing for all ages. The program is held over 2 weekends in January  and has been a tremendous success for years since it was introduced.

The club is an accedited Yachting Australia "Discover Sailing" centre and delivers the Dinghy program Start Sailing and Better Sailing courses with our own Yachting Australia qualified instructors.
