What are your kids doing these school holidays?

Get them out of the house – and put them on a boat!

Royal Akarana Yacht Club offers school holiday programs where kids are able to spend a whole day or multiple days trying out engaging water-based activities.

These holiday programs are run as “Sail & Play” style events. This means that half the day is spent sailing while the other half is dedicated to other water-based activities.
