Wakatere's Waka Compass Programme is the club's training programme, designed for beginners to introduce them to sailing.
Sailing is a sport that, whether at a high level or cruising, is rewarding and fulfilling. It incorporates adventure and the outdoors with problem solving and resilience, while being a fun way to get to know more people!
Wakatere is a family club with opportunities to learn at all ages. Whether you are a parent looking to provide a new experience for your child, or an adult looking for a new activity to try out, there is a space for you with us.
The Waka Compass Programme is divided by age: Waka Confidence (8-11yrs), Waka Adventure (12-17yrs), and Waka Adults. Each group starts with the basics of learning to sail, then builds knowledge and understanding tailored to the needs of each group. More information on the groups is below.
