Our childrens programme begins in simple and robust Optimist boats, provided by Rotorua Yacht Club. Parents are under no obligation to buy a boat before starting the course.
Adult courses are also available. If you don't own a boat, you can sail a club Topaz or Laser.
Levels 1 & 2 cost $125 each, including boat hire and coaching. Sailors who sign up for levels 1 & 2 in the same season are entitled to free Rotorua Yacht Club membership for that season.
Level 3 costs $65 per season, plus annual membership, for sailors using their own boat, or $130 per season for those using a club boat. For safety reasons, the organisers reserve the right to pair youth in double-handed boats in stronger winds, or to develop different skills. This will be at no extra charge.
Enrol here to reserve your place on the boat, or Contact Us to find out more.
