Sailing Section promotes safe sailing and sailing skills and enjoyment of the sport amongst all ages. Regular races are held every second Sunday from September until April (see Race programme) and a regular Tuesday night race series takes place for laser class yachts.
Sailing Section hosts an annual regatta held at Manawatu Marine Boating Club and sailors from the club are invited to regattas around the lower North Island; this is a great opportunity to race and sharpen up sailing skills and to socialize.
An emphasis is placed on learning to sail and training and coaching clinics and camps are held.
Sailing Section has a large number of optimist yachts for use by children as training boats. These boats are available for hire by groups / schools and are used on club training and race days. Sailing Section also teachs adults to sail and boats are available for those interested in learning to sail.
Safety is important and we always have two patrol craft on the water during sailing days.
