Here at Glendowie Boating Club we are passionate about introducing people to sailing at all levels. For our young first-time sailors we offer a teaching and coaching pathway to take them from beginners through to competent sailors, where they can then join with our race fleets for competitive sailing.
We offer Introduction to Sailing holiday progamme courses - a fun way to get a taste of sailing.
Our junior Learn to Sail courses are run on Sundays from October to April. Our couses are:
- Learn to Sail (Yachting New Zealand Level 1)
- Upskillers (Yachting New Zealand Level 2)
- Adventurers (Yachting New Zealand Level 3)
From Adventurers, youngsters can progress to racing, typically in the Optimist Green fleet.
We also offer an Adult Learn to Sail course on Tuesday evenings in two-person RS Feva dinghies. This course is suitable for adults, older teens, or for a parent that wants to learn along side their child.
All through the learning process the club provides support for the sailors and their families assisting in the purchasing of boats, maintenance and become involved in the sailing sport. Most importantly our club is a community of friends, providing a place to be involved in sailing in a fun way.
