Omokoroa Boat Club, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Omokoroa Boat Club Sailing

The Club has operated a Junior learn to sail programme
during the summer from September to April since 1999.

All ages above 5 are accepted and for Club member's children there is no charge, the fee for non members is currently $30 per junior member.

The club owns 9 optimist dinghies, 6 sunbursts, 3 vikings and 3 rescue / coaching vessels so we can cater for adults as well!! We also have 2 rescue craft.

We sail on the main beach with an incoming tide and the main requirement is a life jacket that fits, a sun hat and swim gear.

The programme is posted on the Web site under Junior Sailing. We also encourage our young sailors to assist in boat maintenance during the winter months

Club Sailing.

The Club offers a wide range of sailing events to Yachts men and women currently during the summer months with harbour cruises and trips to Karewa and Motiti Islands (once the MV Rena issue has been resolved).

Courses are fully briefed and charts available and we emphasise the enjoyment of sailing in the harbour over and above flat out racing!!

However, there is keen competition between Trailer and Keel yachts with a range of trophies for the various classes and events.

Again the full programme and details of the rules are published on the web site under Senior Sailing. More Yachts are welcome!!

The current Sailing convenor is John Budden

CADET SAIL TRAINING

OCTOBER 2018 APRIL 2019 SAILING PROGRAMME


This year we want to extend your skills, parents and young sailors both to fully use our five Sunbursts whilst beginners start off in the Optimist fleet.

We hope the Seascouts will bring their Sunbursts (and/or cutters) too.

We aim to enjoy our sailing in safety now we have three RIBs plus maybe (?) the Scout Rescue boats.

Meet at the boat shed as before. Remember your life jackets, clearly marked.

Here is the programme for the September to December 2017 sailing:

Please ensure that each sailor must have:

  1. All sailors to have a life jacket that fits properly - waist coat "vest" ideal (Steves Marine supplies).
  2. Sun hats and sun block to be worn at all times.
  3. Wet suit or swimming togs, wind proof jacket, towels and/or warm clothes for after sailing to be brought each week.
  4. A parent or parents must attend and help the Club and enjoy the sport with their children.
  5. Please bring your own sailing dinghy but allow extra time to rig and we ask you to share crewing in your boat if we have large numbers attending.
  6. Drink bottles are recommended.
  7. Parents wanting to sail will need adult life jackets etc as for juniors.
  8. Junior membership of the Club is only $30.00 per annum. Joining the Club will ensure the Junior sailing programme continues and let the sport grow. Application form attached herewith. Children of members sail at no cost but donations are welcome!
  9. You can also visit the club deck and Boat Shed cafe after sailing.
  10. The Club accepts no liability for any accident or injury and I will send you out the new forms covering your child's (children's) sailing, which must be signed and returned to me or the tutor of the day.
