Sailing in Manly, Sydney, New South Wales Australia
Manly hosts several options of training schools, offering courses and lessons for beginners and for more experienced sailors, who want to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area from water. The best period to visit the spot is in spring and autumn when weather is not too hot (20-25°C/68-77°F) and it is not too crowded.
Due to its short wavelengths (50 m/164 ft) and warm waters sailors are able to sail in almost all wind directions. Swell size starts working at less than 1 m/3 ft and holds up to 2 m/6 ft. You can get involved as much as you like. You can help sail the boat or hire a captain. Some schools provide the opportunity for people with disabilities to enjoy a sailing ride. Last but not least, you should have some water to drink and a hat.
