Had a great ICC course with Chris and was well looked after by Anne. Chris is clear and knowledgeable and teaches you not only what's in the book, but the sense you need to be a better sailor, skipper, and seaman outside the book. Down...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
