Fourteen new sailors received their Learn to Sail certificates yesterday after successfully completing the junior sailing course this week.

To celebrate their achievement – the under 12 sailors had a pirate picnic on Motu Koromiri in Muri before being presented with their certificates.

During the three-day course the new sailors learnt water safety, parts of a boat and of course how to sail in the plastic Optimist class of boats.Proud parents watched as each child was presented with a certificate.

The older kids in the course will take to the water today in the Green Fleet before the Learn to Sail course starts again on January 8.

If you are keen for your kids to be water smart and learn to sail – contact the Rarotonga Sailing Club.
