More than 120 Border students have taken to Lake Hume over the past month, learning the basics of sailing.
The program, offered through Albury-Wodonga Yacht Club's Discover Sailing Centre, introduced children to the sport and also reinforced water safety messages.
Yesterday qualified volunteer instructors from the club supervised Wodonga West Primary School pupils in small dinghies called optis.
Discover Sailing Centre principal Wes Ward said the opti's weight, sail size and stability meant it could be sailed in all wind conditions, making it the perfect learning boat.

Mr Ward said the school students enjoyed the sailing sessions.
"They love coming here, they love getting wet, but they also love learning something different," he said.
"It's a great way of getting a taste of what's possible."
