Junior Learn to Sail 4 day course is designed to introduce children aged 9 and over, to sailing and to give kids a taste of the fun and joy of sailing simple yachts, an understanding of water safety, and the opportunity to challenge themselves. Among other things it builds confidence and teaches self reliance and problem solving skills. Plus it is great fun, and a wonderful adventure pushing a boat off and going sailing with your friends. We have a range of yachts available to accommodate kids that have outgrown the Optimist dinghy size (55kg), and so kids can sail in pairs when conditions permit. The safe waters of Sandspit Beach (Waiuku River) is a wonderful place to learn to sail.
Previous sailing experience is not required, and this block course does not require parent help. Spaces are limited to 10 Sailors.
