Waka Compass Adventure

Waka Adventure (12-17yr olds)

Wakatere's adventure programme is designed for youths aged 12-17 with the aims of having fun, making friends, and learning a variety of skills. Sailors are given the opportunity to learn to sail, explore different types of sailing such as windsurfing, and be introduced to powerboat driving. The adventure programme focuses on the social aspect of being a member of a boating club, whether in a dinghy, kayak, or hanging out on the beach. Sailors are not required to own their own boat; most sailing will be done in club-owned RS Fevas.

Youth Learn to Sail: A 5 day introduction to sailing for beginners run during school holidays. Sailed in double-handed RS Fevas provided by the club, sailors will learn the basics of how to set up and control their boat while working as a team.

Adventure 1: Held on Sunday mornings throughout the season. After learning the basics, sailors build their knowledge to include how to use a spinnaker, safety and geography of the bay for destination sails, and how to communicate better with their skipper/crew.

Adventure 2: Sailors will continue their Feva learning, but also get the opportunity to try out different boats like windsurfers and powerboats.

LEARN TO SAIL NOTES

Non members: Due to club requirements, a temporary invitational membership is included in the LTS package and will last for the duration of the course, as well as part of the season should a sailor continue to the next level. You can upgrade to a full membership after spending some time at the club, with $100 of the LTS payment reallocated if upgrading in the same season.

Parent help: Whilst we have all the instructors and student help we need on the water, we would appreciate parent help each day to bring the equipment up from the beach, hosing down and putting away.

If you have any questions about the course, please get in touch with our Head Coach Lydia Grasberger - wakatere.coaching@gmail.com.
