For the third consecutive summer, Royal Akarana Yacht Club had the pleasure of hosting a group of youth sailors from Windrider Sailing Club in China.
The sailors were at the club for 11 days, sailing on the clubs Platu 25 ft keelboats. The aim is to introduce these keen budding sailors to spinnakers and match racing on small keel boats on the Waitemata Harbour.
In the few rest days scheduled they visited some of the iconic Auckland destinations including Motuihe Island and some of the more scenic beaches in the area, as well as a visit to the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron to check out the “Auld Mug.”
A huge thanks to everyone behind the scenes who helps to make this happen and also to China Cup for continuing to support youth sailing in China and abroad.
