Learn to Sail   The club offers ‘Learn to Sail’ and youth training facilities at both the clubhouse and afloat under the guidance of qualified instructors.  The course is a national programme developed by Yachting New Zealand.  It aims to teach students to sail a boat with skill and confidence.  Weekend classes are available for all ages.  The course fee includes all safety equipment and boat hire.
