30 January Junior Sailing Program Kicks off January 30, 2015By Site Admin General 0 The Learn to Sail course held in January is a great start to the Junior Sailing program. Eight young people and one adult successfully completed the course run by Kim Ardmore from Yachting New Zealand. The class was out on the water every day even though the weather over the 4 days was generally grey and blustery gusting to over 20 knots at times. We will continue to build on this program over the next few months by encouraging more parent / caregiver participation, and supporting the efforts of a couple of the junior members motivated to start a Sailing Club at Rutherford College.

The club welcomed a new sailor (who had obviously done it before) sailing a borrowed Boat (Asahi). Day 1 was a brisk wind giving some exciting moments for all. The scratch results were shared evenly among 3 boats. Days 2 saw a complete change with very light winds. The competition was then done to two with our visitor in Asahi taking the honours. With the new handicaps set for the second half of the season it was Limeburner that prevailed in the handicap stakes. We must acknowledge that Ashia was pushing here also taking out second place. Well done to all the sailors and thanks to the support personnel!
