Learn to Sail for Teens


Published 00:00 on 5 Dec 2018

Youth Learn to Sail December 2018

This Learn to Sail Course is a beginner course for YOUTH sailors and will run over 4 consecutive days in the December school holidays 2018.

A youth sailor is generally 12 yrs+ and missed out on learning to sail when they were younger or are too big to fit an Optimist.

Club RS Fevas are provided for this course - this is a two-man dinghy and participants will learn to both helm and crew the boat.

DATES: 10th Dec - 13th Dec 2018

TIME: 9am- 3pm each day

TOTAL COST: $430 - this amount includes junior membership for the season 2018/19. .

The course is led by a Yachting New Zealand qualified Learn to Sail instructor and follows the Yachting New Zealand Learn to Sail curriculum. It is run by the club to allow teenagers to learn to sail, in the hope that they will enjoy the course and then join the Wakatere Youth Feva coaching program.

Sailors must be aged 12 years at the time of the course and must be able to swim 50 metres unaided wearing a PFD (personal floating device) and sailing gear. Sailors will need their own buoyancy aid, wetsuit or warm sailing gear. Sailors will need to be available to attend all of the days of the course to obtain their end of course certificate in order to move onto other Wakatere sailing programmes.
