The Nepean Sailing School has plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in extra sailing!

Monday Night O’ Pen BIC Racing

Monday Night O’ Pen BIC Racing occurs every Monday evening, beginning at 6 pm and finishing at 9 pm, during July and August.  This event aims to teach sailors to learn how to race in a fun and non- competitive environment against fellow sailing friends.  There is no charge to join the fun, just have your parents fill out the participation form and waiver.  BIC racing is open to all ages!

O’Pen BIC Un-Regatta

The O’ Pen BIC Un- regatta is NSC’s annual youth regatta held in an unconventional manner.  This regatta aims to introduce and instill the love of sailboat racing into young and eager sailors.  As well as racing, a free- style event is held.  The sailors will have a chance to show of their best moves with an O’ Pen BIC.  There are prizes to be won by all sailors!  To inquire for more information regarding the regatta please visit the O’ Pen BIC Un-regatta website or phone the sailing school.

Extra Sailing Lessons

If you feel you want extra sailing lessons to improve your sailing skills we offer private lessons, where you will be one- on- one with your instructor.  Private lessons run for a minimum of 3 hours.  For more information please contact the sailing school.
