Sail Like A PRO

We Are Young But We
Have A Lot Of Friends Already


We are without a doubt advocates for learning on the water, but good reading material is always useful. In the past we have used many different books, but we always felt they were missing something, overcomplicating sailing and/or skipping crucial steps. So we decided to write our own book: Sail Like A PRO, the product of over 50,000 miles of teaching. The book complements our tried and proven teaching techniques.

Sail Like A PRO is the Australian handbook to learn to sail. It’s full of practical advice, from basic manoeuvres, safety procedures, navigation and dealing with emergencies, to purchasing a boat, maintenance and racing. This handy pocket guide is perfect for novice sailors and a good reference manual for the more experienced skipper. Our good friend and 8 time Volvo Ocean Race legend, Bouwe Bekking, wrote an inspiring foreword that ties in beautifully with our attitude of sharing our passion for the sailing sport, with as many people as we can.  We’re proud to say that Sail Like A PRO, although it was essentially written for our students, is now available to a broader audience. Sail Like A PRO can be bought directly through us, on Amazon and in trusted stores such as Boat Books and Whitworths.
