About the Event

Worser Bay Boating Club offers ‘Start Sailing’ courses for those with limited or no sailing experience. The courses are professionally run by Yachting New Zealand qualified coaches.

Children must be between 9 and 14 years of age, from the start of the course.

If you would like your child to do a start sailing course during term time let us know by registering your interest. When we have enough children ready to go then we will run the course over a series of days that suits the group. ‘Start Sailing’ courses for children cost $250 and require five children registered before they will be run. Register your interest now and we will get back to you when we have enough children ready to run the course.

The club's plastic optimist dinghies are used.  The club will also supply a buoyancy vest for the lessons.

Sailors must be able to swim 50 metres unaided wearing a PFD (personal floating device) and sailing gear.
