Our official summer season started on the 30th of November. We will be running Day Sails everyday and Sundowner Sails every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Join us and grab yourself a ticket here.

Wrapping up our Youth Voyages
In November, we welcomed home our last youth voyage of the season. We have had an incredible year working with Tai Tokerau youth providing them with life-changing experiences and friendships for life.
Let’s look at the numbers for 2021:
- 17 youth voyages
- 204 trainees on board
- 119 days out at sea with trainees
We thank everyone who has been part of our programme, including sponsors, parents, teachers, crew and of course, our wonderful trainees themselves. We’re always looking for ways to bring more trainees on board so we can continue impacting rangatahi in our community. Our dates and application forms for 2022 youth voyages will be available early next year on our website.
Check out our 2020 – 2021 Annual Report for more insights into our youth voyages.
