Frequently Asked Questions

The car parking area at Rockley Point is owned and administered by Rockley Park and not ourselves. Charges are made for car parking (half price if you are taking a course with us) and do not apply if you are simply picking up or dropping off others on courses with Rockley Watersports.

Upon registration, you will receive a detailed kit list. Generally, you should bring comfortable, weather-appropriate sailing attire, sunscreen, a water bottle, and any personal sailing gear you prefer using, although standard equipment is provided.

The minimum age requirement is 16. There is no maximum age limit, but participants should be physically able to handle the demands of sailing and teaching on the water.

While accommodation is not included in the course fee, the centre located near a variety of lodging options ranging from budget-friendly hostels to more comfortable hotels. We can provide recommendations based on your preferences and budget. There is also on-site accommodation, subject to availability, at an additional fee.

It’s highly recommended to have consistent sailing practice prior to the assessment. You can also take advantage of the practice day offered the Saturday before the assessment or join the Instructor Preparation Week for extensive preparation. Both can be booked at the bottom of this page.

If you do not pass the assessment, you can discuss your areas for improvement with the assessor and rebook the assessment for another date. Many candidates benefit from additional practice and training before re-attempting.

There is no set limit on the number of times you can attempt the assessment. However, it’s important to use feedback constructively and ensure adequate preparation between attempts.

If possible, scheduling the assessment immediately after a practice or training day is ideal as the skills and feedback are fresh. Otherwise, plan for no more than a few weeks later to maintain skill sharpness.
