Paremata Boating Club offers an adult Learn to Sail program. This covers YNZ level 1 and is done using using our 2-person club Topaz yachts.

This provides 8 hours of coaching which is done on a one on one basis with a YNZ qualified coach. The course costs $400.

Scheduling of lessons is arranged to suit the adult student and coach; the course can be completed in four 2-hour lessons, two 4-hour lessons, or any other arrangement that suits both parties.

The objective of this course is to get the student sailor to a level to allow them to take part in club sailing (weather permitting) to continue to build up experience and skills. They may also continue coaching and undertake a YNZ level 2 course with us on the same terms as above.

To take part in this course you need to be able to swim 50m.
