Waka Compass Adventure

Waka Adventure (12-17yr olds)

Wakatere's adventure programme 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 programme 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.

Youth Learn to Sail: A 5 day introduction to sailing for beginners run during school holidays. Sailed in double-handed RS Fevas provided by the club, sailors will learn the basics of how to set up and control their boat while working as a team.

Adventure 1: Held on Sunday mornings throughout the season. After learning the basics, sailors build their knowledge to include how to use a spinnaker, safety and geography of the bay for destination sails, and how to communicate better with their skipper/crew.

Adventure 2: Sailors will continue their Feva learning, but also get the opportunity to try out different boats like windsurfers and powerboats.
