Upskillers is where sailors build on their skills and learn to sail fast!   They will improve their boat handling techniques, while learning about sail trimming, steering and polishing their tacking and gybing skills.  Sailors will complete the Yachting New Zealand Level 2 certificate.

GBC employs enthusiastic young coaches to provide the sailors with a great education and introduce this new level in a fun way.  

At this level, sailors are required to purchase their own Optimist dinghies.  However, the club has access to several Optimists that are available for lease.

Any questions please contact the Optimist Convener David Davies 021 922 102
