Junior LTS April 2021 - Week 2

26th - 30 April

This Learn to Sail Course is for juniors aged 8+ who are interested to get out on the water in a new way! Sailing is a great way to get outside, have fun, and make new friends while learning new skills, regardless of whether or not kids are competitive or happy to adventure.

This course will run over five consecutive days during the April school holidays. Sailed in Optimists provided by the club, sailors will learn the basics of how the wind works, parts of the boat, and how to set up and control their boat while working as a team and having fun.

DATES: 26th - 30th April 2021

TIME: 9am - 12pm

COST: $400 non members, $300 members

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 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.
