Omokoroa Boat Club Sailing
Junior Learn To Sail Programme
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
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
