Yachting New Zealand’s Volvo Sailing…Have a Go! Schools programme recently wrapped up its 10th season!

During the 2015-2016 season -

• Over 3400 students had a go at sailing
• 90% of kids who rated the day as AWESOME and indicated a desire to continue to sail
• More than 100 schools participated
• 45 Yachting New Zealand affiliated clubs hosted potential new members

  • From Taipa to Bluff the Instructors collectively travelled the length and width of New Zealand

Check out this great Volvo Sailing… Have a Go! video which follows Northern Region Instructor Reuben Corbett on a typical day the office!

Thanks to Volvo and the Lion Foundation, for their ongoing commitment and support to this fantastic initiative. It would not be possible without them.
The Volvo Sailing…Have a go! programme will be back next season, restarting in term 4. If you would like to get your school or club involved in the 2016/2017 season, contact Yachting New Zealand. We will be taking bookings and putting together calendar over the winter months.
