Riviera Nautic yacht and motor cruiser charter

Sailing Camp Ideas

School sailing camps are usually for three to five days, sailing and living on board the boats. Normally, the group is divided into four or five students with one adult (with sailing experience) per boat. While this is the norm, there are plenty of other options. Some recent examples include:

Boats and the environment

The school booked onshore accommodation and chartered one eight berth yacht for five days. Each day a teacher took a group of students sailing and they spent the night on the yacht.

Over the course of the five days, all students had the opportunity to sail. At other times, students were occupied with exploring the on-shore environment around the Lakes

Discover East Gippsland and learn to sail

DAY ONE: students explored the natural heritage of East Gippsland, including Buchan Caves and arrived at Riviera Nautic in the late afternoon to be accommodated on the boats.

DAY TWO: a Riviera Nautic sailing master was assigned to each boat, and the morning was spent learning to sail. In the afternoon, students were put to the test with a yacht race.Later in the day, the Gippsland Water Police gave a talk on boating safety. The students spent the second night on board the yachts.

DAY THREE: there were further East Gippsland explorations, then students returned to Melbourne.

Boating and the environment

Students spent five days on the Gippsland Lakes: two on shore at a caravan park in Paynesville, and the balance on board the yachts.

While in Paynesville, Parks Victoria rangers and representatives of the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Board talked to them about environmental issues.

While on board the boats, as well as the sailing, they were able to build on what they had learned from the speakers.
