Harbour sail

During Summer we run harbour sails on Saturdays or Sundays. The sail lasts for a little over an hour and a half and depending on the wind will take you to places such as Queen’s Wharf, Oriental Parade and Evans Bay. During winter sails are arrange based on availability and demand. Get in touch to find out more.

This is best enjoyed as a group activity, a great way to spend time with friends, colleagues or family learning a new activity and a great introduction to sailing if you are considering taking a course. These are great outings for visitors and if you do have a group we can accommodate you with your own time and booking.

You don’t need any experience, just some warm clothing and a pair of sports shoes. We provide the sailing jackets and safety equipment. If it is fine then there is no place more beautiful – if it is windy then there is no place more exhilarating!

What to Wear

This course has an on-the-water component. Dress warmly, even in summer. A wool or polypropylene base layer is a good idea, with at least one more warm layer on top. We provide you with a good quality set of breathable waterproof gear (pants and jacket) along with a life-jacket. A hat and sunglasses are also a good idea. Make sure that you have a strap or similar so that you don’t lose these overboard![/tab]

Weather information

This course is weather dependent. We will go on-the-water if it is safe to do so, but if it too windy, too wet or too cold, then we might have to stay ashore.[/tab]
