SAIL AT WAKATERE
Narrow Neck is one of the best locations for sailing in New Zealand - with a clubhouse on the waterfront, direct access to a wide sandy beach, and facing the picturesque Rangitoto Channel, the conditions are ideal.
Wakatere is a centreboard dinghy sailing club with a family focus. It's not unusual to have different members of one family sailing across a number of classes or parent/child combinations in our 2 handed dinghies.
We hold regular club racing on most Sunday afternoons during our season from September - May. We also have coaching for our junior & youth classes as well as learn to sail courses for children and adults.
We are a membership based club and rely on everyone to volunteer to help run racing at some stage in the season. More about membership

CLUB RACING DOCS
*If conditions allow, the Opti class may do more races than scheduled and all races will count towards their Season Points.
After school coaching is popular across all junior and youth classes. Bookings are open to club members with a website login. Contact point is Wakatere's head coach Lydia Grasberger
Senior midweek training evenings or group sails are organised more informally by Class Reps.
