Sailing School and Cruises


Multihull Solutions is delighted to partner with Too Up Sailing to offer practical multihull sail training and unique multihull sailing experiences on Sydney’s idyllic waterways and along the Queensland coast.

All cruises and courses are conducted by a professional skipper onboard a brand new in 2015 Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41 Evolution and can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.

The courses and sailing experiences are ideally suited to:

  • Those preparing to embark on a bareboat charter holiday and need to brush up on skills specific to chartering;
  • Those deciding whether owning a multihull (or monohull) is the right decision for you;
  • Those wishing to introduce a reluctant or inexperienced partner to sailing;
  • Complete novices who want to get a taste of sailing in a small private charter environment;
  • Those who have some sailing experience but want to refresh or improve upon their existing skills;
  • Those wanting to gain experience in coastal sailing, navigation and general cruising.

Too Up Sailing Courses - Sydney

The one or two-day courses cover a broad range of essential skills, and also demonstrate many tricks of the trade that will make your sailing experiences safer and more enjoyable.

DSC_0237Full Day Private Lesson:

Duration: 6 hours
Location: Sydney Harbour

This is designed for anyone with minimal sailing experience and is ideal for a couple considering purchasing or chartering a catamaran for the first time.

For more experienced sailors we can also tailor the lesson to help your “non-sailing” partner gain the confidence so you can work together in handling the boat with ease.

Throughout the course, you will learn how to: plan your sailing trip; cruise with confidence; navigate efficiently using electronic and paper chart plotting; hoist sails, tack, gybe, reef, plus basic sailing and motoring operations; successfully anchor and pick up moorings; safely embark and disembark at a marina; tie up and secure your vessel, and much more. We will also show you how to use the safety equipment on board.
