How do I know if sailing is happening?
We will notify you via the Akarana Sailing Academy Facebook page and email by close of business Thursday which will give you plenty of time to make alternate plans for the weekend if sailing does not go ahead.
What happens if we get four sailing sessions completed in the first four weeks?
Great! Everything went to plan! If you want to continue then we will take expressions of interest for those who are keen to continue sailing for the remaining Sundays of the term.
It’s quite cold – what should the kids wear?
Thermals! Wetsuits! Beanies! Shoes! Gloves! Jackets!
