Junior Sailing

The protected waters in and around Matauwhi Bay are the perfect location for kids to learn to sail.

The Club offers a seasonal junior sailing program on each Monday after school commencing with the onset of daylight saving. The Club is also keen to expand our junior sailing program during the summer school holidays this season.

We also host Yachting New Zealand’s national “Volvo Sailing – Have A Go” program, which gives local kids additional opportunity for hands onsailing instruction and fun on the water.

Brett Avery does a fantastic job overseeing junior sailing and maintaining all of the equipment. Kids who are interested in participating, and parents and members who are keen to help with the program can contact Brett at 403 77 99 or info@russellboatingclub.org.nz.
