Southern Ocean Sailing is based in Albany, on the south coast of Western Australia.
Our passion is sailing but more importantly introducing people to the wonders of the oceans.
Our "fleet" includes a Beneteau 40.7 First, a Hunter 260 and our Recreational Skipper's Ticket craft.
We have experience sailing the oceans of the world. From the ice of Antarctica, around Cape Horn to the Northern Atlantic and all oceans between.
Our ocean knowledge provides for a terrific experience whether blue water sailing, coastal sailing or obtaining your Recreational Skipper's Ticket.
Mark is a walking encyclopaedia on how to handle a boat safely and how to make sure I keep myself and my passengers safe. He was very encouraging during the training session and the assessment. I was very nervous about getting my Skipper’s Ticket, but Mark made it feel like fun which helped me a lot.Sandy and Rory Laurens, Albany
The Ocean and sailing has been part of our family for many years. What a pleasure it was to spend some time with a chap who has sailed the oceans of the world. Mark's story is amazing and what was fantastic was the way he was able to share his knowledge. I would recommend to anyone needing a Skippers Ticket to contact Southern Ocean Sailing. A wonderful day on the water!Jenny Rickerby, Albany
We found practical tips, based on Mark's extensive experience, extremely useful. A very thorough and informative test, presented in a professional, friendly and helpful (not intimidating) manner. We would recommend "Southern Ocean Sailing" to anyone wishing to obtain their RST.Kevin Hall, Karrinup
