The wonderful Milford Beach is an ideal and safe environment for
children to learn to sail under the guidance of a qualified
Yachting New Zealand Coach. The program is designed to cater
for children eight years and older (who can swim). We have 15
Optimist Dinghys (virtually indistructable) and two
rigid hull inflatable dinghys for training and safety.
The programme is a family social event where children are
intoduced to sailing with the empahsis on fun with
competition thrown in. The introductory Learn To Sail program is
followed by a Learn to Race module.
We request one parent from each family to assist each week with
training. At the end of each training session their will be
sausages and refreshments at the club rooms.
Every Friday 4 p.m. - 6.30p.m.
October - December, February - March
