Harbour sail

Most Saturdays and Sundays you can enjoy a Harbour Sail with Ocean Sports. The sail lasts for a little over an hour and a half and depending on the wind will take you to places such as Queen’s Wharf, Oriental Parade and Evans Bay.

This is best enjoyed as a group activity, a great way to spend time with friends, collegues or family learning a new activity and a great introduction to sailing if you are considering taking a course. These are great outings for visitors and if you do have a group we can accommodate you with your own time and booking.

You don’t need any experience, just some warm clothing and a pair of sports shoes. We provide the sailing jackets and safety equipment. If it is fine then there is no place more beautiful – if it is windy then there is no place more exhilarating!

  • This course has an on-the-water component. Dress warmly, even in summer. A wool or polypropylene base layer is a good idea, with at least one more warm layer on top. We provide you with a good quality set of breathable waterproof gear (pants and jacket) along with a lifejacket. A hat and sunglasses are also a good idea. Make sure that you have a strap or similar so that you don’t lose these overboard!
  • This course is weather dependent. We will go on-the-water if it is safe to do so, but if it too windy, too wet or too cold, then we might have to stay ashore.
  • Harbour sails operate most Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 2.30 to 4pm subject to availability. Additional departures and evening sails (including Rum Racing on Fridays from 5.30) may be scheduled in summer  .
