Learn To Sail

We hold a range of sailing for our juniors at Maraetai Sailing Club, ranging from our Learn to Sail fleet, right through to our advanced junior sailors. Our programs cater for children 9 years and older.

Our Learn to Sail course uses Optimist dinghys which can be hired from the club. Each course runs for 7 weeks in which time your young sailor will be taught the basics of sailing and be ready to move on to the next sailing group.

From there, our sailors join the Learn to Race group. This group is NOT just racing. It combines fun games, destination sails and racing to build on the skills they learnt in the Learn to Sail program.

The sailors then move in to our intermediate and advanced groups where the coaches continue to build on their skills to create exceptionally talented young sailors.

Our more experienced sailors are coached at MSC in a range of sailing dinghys, including Optimists, P Class, Starling, Laser & RS Feva.
