Waka Compass Adults

Waka Adults

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Waka Adults is our adult learn to sail programme. If you've got a little sense of adventure, sailing would be great for you. We sail in pairs, so it's a fun way to meet new people while getting out on the water.

Wakatere offers courses for adults in club-owned RS Feva's, a type of double-handed dinghy. There are two levels, each run over 6 Saturdays.

Level 1 is designed for complete beginners and covers basics about how to control the boat & sails and how to stay safe on the water.

Level 2 builds skills like keeping the boat balanced and how to go faster, as well as an introduction to racing.

Upcoming Courses

ADULT LEARN TO SAIL LEVEL 1: 17th Oct - 5th Dec (9am - 12pm)
ADULT LEARN TO SAIL LEVEL 2: 17th Oct - 5th Dec (1pm - 4pm)
Saturday Courses
Cost: $400 non members, $300 members

Non members: Due to club requirements, a temporary invitational membership is included in the LTS package and will last for the duration of the course, as well as part of the season should a sailor continue to the next level. You can upgrade to a full membership after spending some time at the club, with $100 of the LTS payment reallocated if upgrading in the same season.
