Volvo Sailing... Have A Go!
From waka races and club racing to fishing competitions and BBQs, the 2017 Volvo Sailing and Boating Week will be a great way showcase what sailing and boating has to offer.
The fourth edition of the Volvo Sailing and Boating Week will run from January 29-February 5, with clubs around the country designing their own programmes. Each one will be different but the main objective is for clubs to illustrate to newcomers what they have to offer.
Yachting New Zealand will be running Sailing… Have a go! days at various venues across the country during the summer holidays.
Sailing... Have a Go! days will be run in the Bay of Islands, central Auckland and lower South Island during the week of January 23-27 to give Kiwi kids the chance to experience the fun and excitement of sailing.
The world’s best junior sailors are in Torbay this week for the Aon Youth Sailing World Championships and the message to aspiring kids enrolled for the Volvo Sailing... Have A Go! programme is that the top sailors all started in the same boats they get to try out.
We are halfway through the school term already, and the Sailing…Have a go! team has been working hard to get kiwi kids out on the water and experiencing the thrills and spills of sailing! So far this term over 500 kids from around the country have Had a Go! at sailing at their local yacht club.

Seeing kids fall in love with sailing every day is what Paul Moriarty loves most about his job. Along with travelling the country, visiting sailing venues, and being on the water.
