Welcome to Glendowie Boating Club
The Glendowie Boating Club (GBC) is a family oriented sailing club focusing on Optimist, P Class, Starling, Feva and Mistral class yacht training and racing. The club racing is held on Sundays from Spring to Autumn. The GBC also participates in an Autumn series run by Howick Sailing Club (each sunday in May) and a fortnightly Winter centreboard program run by BBYC. This means we can meet demand from sailors wishing to maintain sailing as a year round activity. The GBC also takes part in yachting regattas sending sailors and boats North and South to compete against other yacht clubs.
REGISTER FOR OUR OCTOBER 2018 HOLIDAY LEARN TO SAIL OR FOUR DAY RACE CLINIC
Looking for something to enrol your child into for the school holidays? Is your young sailor keen to develop those skills further?
GBC is running a Learn to Sail programme during week 2 of the October school holidays. This Yachting NZ approved course runs from Monday 8 October until Friday 12 October (9:30am to 12:30pm) inclusive. Attendees use a club training optimist and will receive a YNZ Level 1 certificate on successful completion. The cost is $340.00 per sailor (non-members) and $270 (members) includes boat rental and all coaching costs.
The course is a great way to get a taste of sailing in a safe environment with excellent, trained coaches. All the sailors need are warm clothes, a windbreaker and some food. A wetsuit is a really good idea if available. We do ask that sailors are at least 9 years old.
And we’re also running a Four Day Clinic for all Racing Sailors at all skill levels (Optimist, P and Starling). The clinic will cover boat handling, boat and sail setup, fitness etc. Who should go? Learn to Race (LTR) fleet and up. The dates are 8-11 October. The cost, including all coaching is $200. Bring your own boat, lunch, drink bottle and snacks.
Register for both courses via our Clubhub member link below. For any questions please use the email contacts on the website.
