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 Fevas, a type of double-handed dinghy. You'll learn about both helm and crew positions.

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.
