Patrol Boat Duties are undertaken each week by club members (or parents of junior club members) as part of club roster. You can volunteer as a skipper or crew to support club racing and/or club regattas.
On-the-water parent support is required for our junior coaching sessions. Come dressed to get wet!
This is part of your commitment to club membership.
One day patrol boat safety courses are run during the season. They are open to all Club members (16yrs +) or parents of junior Club members.
While many of you know how to drive a patrol boat, this course is about rescuing and retrieving boats and sailors in the water and how to manage rigs & sails when towing. This is an essential course for Wakatere patrol boat skippers and crew.
We especially invite parents of our juniors sailors so they are more confident and able to support our junior coaching programmes. i.e. parents of Sunday morning sailors and Green fleet sailors.
