Melbourne Docklands Sailing School
The Docklands's School fills a much
needed niche with affordable courses for toe - dippers.
It means you'll learn on a dinghy,(
a small 2 person yacht), in a group lesson ( 12 - 18) and
be sailing around Victoria Harbour rather thatn jostling with
the Bay's finest, but that's a plus for starters.
It's two basic courses are either half
or full day events and a refreshing change from the traditional
yacht Clubs where you may have to become a member to sail.

Learn To Sail, Come sail
away - The Age
If you have the urge to hit the ocean waves this weekend,
there are plenty of ways to get afloat in and around Melbourne
You can enrol in some learn to sail classes or just soak
up the atmosphere on a 2 hour 'sailing takes you away
" session touring the Victoria Harbour water
precinct with the Dockland Sailing School.
The two-hour sail is supervised by a certified instructor
who will show you how to sail and steer the keelboat, or allow
you to just sit back and relax and enjoy a different view
of Melbourne .
Later, you can complete the aquatic experience with a visit
to one of the many Docklands bars or restaurants.
But if you prefer the idea of something more intensive and
energetic, the school also offers learn to-sail classes from
$25 per hour. The courses are accredited by the Australian
Yachting federation, and are offered in Pacer dinghies. The
school offers classes to people aged from 16.
Dockland Sailing School manager Tony Legg believes that sailing
Is not just a sport, but also a way of life for many people
- he spent his honeymoon on a boat.
Legg says the company's introductory sailing course is designed
to show beginners the basics of sailing and offers an inexpensive
way to try the sport
'It's a great day out and an affordable way not only to go
for a sail but to team how to sail and experience the freedom
associated with sailing," he says.
Legg suggests people planning to sail should choose loose
comfortable clothing. White or clear soled shoes are needed
on the boats. Sun cream, a hat, sunglasses, a jacket and drinking
water are also advisable to take along.
If you're interested in a group experience, the school also
offers a five-metre-long Savage Dolphin craft, which can accommodate
groups of sailing students - or work colleagues on team-building
exercises. The sailing school can also organise yacht charter
for those ready to sail away on their own adventures. it also
runs 'women on water' classes, where women are taught by women
in smaller, more-personalised formats.

Trainer Tony Legg

LEARNING port from starboard and reaching consensus about
which is which, will be the latest craze in corporate team
building if Tony Legg has anything to do with it.
A former Outdoor Education teacher and sports trainer, the
corporate mentor has taken to the not-so-high seas of the
Victoria Harbour - the Melbourne Docklands in order to help
businesses understand the value of teamwork.
He is a director of Sea Leggs Sailing and Corporate
Team Building, a division of the Docklands Sailing School.
His hands-on courses give staff the chance to push themselves
at the same time as learning to rely on each other.
"Sailing develops attributes like respect,
co-operation, independence but also, interdependence,"
Mr Legg said.
"In many workplaces there's an implied hierarchy of the
manager or supervisor always leading the way, solving the
problems and dictating to their subordinates the workplace
processes. They often discount the value other team members
can make and disempower rather than empower staff."
"But on a sailing boat, just because you have the helm doesn't
mean it's going to work well. You're just as reliant on the
people letting the ropes off."
Mr Legg and workplace psychologist Ross Anderson adapt the
day's sailing to individual company needs.
Events can range from just learning to sail and working as
a team with the Day on the Bay program, through to team racing.
Mr Legg concedes ensuring one person doesn't dominate is an
"How people accept directions or criticism are part of the
challenge of sailing and companies alike," he said.
"We talk about these things in relation to the profile of
the individual company and how they come out in the intensity
of a sailing boat."
He believes sailing also mirrors the business environment
in that each face external fluctuations.
"You are working with things that fluctuate and change. Sailing
because of the wind and the weather," he said.
"You can't just say I'm going from A to B this way every time.
You have to look at the conditions and work the best route."
He also believes his pro gram offers managers more than a
fun day out.
"This is not just about pushing yourself physically. It's
about setting up a situation, which tests a workplace's ability
to be a team," he said.
