Sunday Sailing: Wellington Harbour!

  • Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club

    103 Oriental Parade, Oriental Bay, Wellington (map)

    -41.291451 174.787918

  • 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.

    Hey, I just followed the link above to enrol and pay for tomorrow's sailing but the site says there's no more places left. Is this right? Thanks!

      Not sure why that is - you're on the list for today though so bring cash if you can so we can sort it out at the sailing academy. Thanks
