Hey Kids - Learn to Sail at the GBC
Learning to sail is a lot of fun and provides children with valuable life skills.
To help children get into sailing in an easy way without the upfront cost of purchasing a boat, Glendowie Boating Club have 12 well equipped Optimists available for children as part of our LEARN TO SAIL programs. Experienced YNZ coaches provide both on and off the water sailing skills. Our coaches were once young sailors themselves and many have achieved international repute – they know how to motivate and develop skills and self-confidence in young sailors.
LEARN TO SAIL programs run during the school holidays and on Sundays during the sailing season in school term time. Visit our website for the latest news on courses and whilst you are there see what else we have by way of development programs.
SCHOOL HOLIDAY COURSE
April 24 – April 28 2017 (with no sailing on Tuesday 25th as it is ANZAC day)

The Glendowie Boating Club offers an idyllic location with boat storage and easy water access. The club has a strong family focus and is a pleasant and friendly environment to sail from.

Does anyone else find that the Felton Matthew lights have caused chaos on Kohimarama / St Johns roads? It now takes up to 20 minutes to make what should be a 6 minute journey to Glen Innes or Stonefields. The lights took long enough to be set up but now there is a constant logjam from St Heliers Bay Road through to Felton Matthew Ave. It is particularly exacerbated by location of the bus stops and by cars parked on the side of the road. Should we as a group be asking/telling the Council to get it sorted ?
Act now to beat the water shortage:
• Install a rainwater tank (resource consent fees waived).
• Maintain your tank (check guttering is clear).
• Install water saving devices (shower head/taps).
• Install a water sensor to monitor your usage.
