Waka Adventure

Waka Adventure

Wakatere's adventure program is designed for youths aged 12-17 with the aims of having fun, making friends, and learning a variety of skills. Sailors are given the opportunity to learn to sail, explore different types of sailing such as windsurfing and be introduced to powerboat driving. 

The adventure program focuses on the social aspect of being a member of a boating club, whether in a dinghy, kayak, or hanging out on the beach. Sailors are not required to own their own boat; most sailing will be done in club-owned RS Fevas.
