26 - 29 April 2017 : April Junior Learn to Sail 2017
This Learn to Sail Course is for juniors and will run over 4 consecutive days in the April school holidays 2017. Club Optimist boats are provided or you can sail your own Opti if you have one. Club Optimists will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis.
DATES: 26th April - 29th April
TIME: 9am- 3pm each day
COST: $335 - this amount includes junior membership for the half season 2016/17. The course booking fee and the membership fee are paid separately.
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 children to learn to sail, in the hope that they will enjoy the course and then join the Wakatere Sunday Optimist program.
Sailors must be aged 8 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.
PARENTAL HELP: Whilst we have all the instructors and student help we need on the water, we would appreciate parent help from 6:30pm each day to bring the equipment up from the beach, hosing down and putting away.
