Sunday Sailing: Wellington Harbour!

  • Wellington Ocean Sports Centre

    115 Oriental Parade, Wellington (map)

    -41.291330 174.789230

  • Look for the steps beside Freyberg Pool down to the marina
  • Come and cruise Wellington harbour with Adventure Wellington! No experience needed. Only seven spots, so be quick!

    Cost: Incredible negotiated AW rate of just $27!

    This is all inclusive -- an instructor, wet weather gear, life jackets -- and a boat!

    What we're doing:
    We meet at 4:45 pm on Sunday evening at the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club Sailing Academy, where we'll board an MRX yacht (look for the steps beside Freyberg Pool down to the marina). Then our skipper will take us out in the harbour where we'll get a feel for sailing!

    At all times the yachts will have onboard instructors in the employment of the Academy who have extensive sailing experience. The cost of the instruction is included in the casual sail rates.

    What to bring:
    Warm clothing
    . The Sailing Academy will provide everyone with a set of wet weather gear for the session. The gear will keep most of the water and wind out but is not insulated so please ensure people wear/bring loose fit- ting polypropylene, fleecy type, casual (ie warm) clothing including hat and gloves, and soft soled closed toe footwear. Feet may get wet so a change of shoes is a good idea. Showers are available in the Yacht Club building if required.

    How long:
    This adventure will take about two hours -- including 1 1/2 hours on the water.

    Sea sickness: Some people are subject to sickness - take seasick tablets the night before and one again prior to the trip. The best ones are Pihia Bombers available by phoning[masked] 7034.

    You must follow this link to enrol, pay, and secure your spot.

    Subject to cancellation: This trip is subject to enough sign ups (must be full to go ahead) and weather conditions and may be postponed to the following Tuesday. If there is only a light drizzle, the event will still go ahead. Wet weather gear is provided.

    Hi everyone, I'm sorry to say that we're going to have to cancel today's sail as it is too windy - and the forecast is for it to get more windy this afternoon. I will arrange for refunds for those of you that have paid. There are still spaces on sails in the next few weeks so please grab one of those if you are keen to sail! Thanks, Rosie

    Hello - thanks for organising this! It looks like the link above to the Wellington Ocean Sports booking site currently only has the 5th of Jan sailing listed. I'll check back in a few days to see if the 12th is added as I am keen to join then. Cheers!
