Dinghy sailing from Petone Beach. 

Sailing instruction for adults and children. 

COMING UP

Saturday December 10: AM Learn-to-sail and Sail-fast. PM Handicap series 1 races 3 & 4.

Saturday December 17: Last sailing day before Christmas. Committee Challenge - be ready to sail for a 4.00pm start with BBQ after at about 6.00pm. This is a fun race with a course set so all the juniors can sail. Families particularly welcome. Please bring your own meat, a salad (or similar), or dessert to share, and any special refreshments. The club will provide spuds.


Rescue boat assistance: To comply with health and safety we need to have two people on each support boat making a total of four in the afternoon.

Please look at the sailing calendar and chose a day between now and Christmas that you would like to be on the support boat.  When you are rostered on the rescue boat your results for those races will be your average score for that series.

If you know of anyone who could help with the support boats please let John Dement know (dements@xtra.co.nz, 021372168).

At a loose end? Its time to start thinking about how you can grow your sailing knowledge - whether you are a junior parent new to sailing, or if you have been around for some time. Coastguard have a range of online courses from Beginning Boating through to Boatmaster, as well as the Maritime VHF Operator Certificate.  For those with more experience YNZ run an online race officer course – even if you are not ready to take on a race officer role you’ll learn a great deal about racing.
