Junior Learn to Sail January 2020 Course 3

20th - 23 January

Course details

This Learn to Sail Course is for juniors and will run over 4 consecutive days in January school holidays 2020. 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. All sailors must be at least 8 years of age for the Wakatere course.

DATES: 20th January 2020 - 23rd January 2020

TIME: 9am- 3pm each day

COST: $430 ($250 course booking fee and $180 membership fee)

The course booking fee and the membership fee are invoiced 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 2.30pm each day to bring the equipment up from the beach, hosing down and putting away.
