Wellington’s Heretaunga Boating Club has six new training boats on the water thanks to a grant from the New Zealand Community Trust.
“Thank you to the New Zealand Community Trust for the recent grant that enabled us to buy the new boats for training young sailors,” says Commodore Keith Fraser.
The photo here was taken at a training course held during the school holidays including the new boats - the orange, blue and yellow ones. Yachting New Zealand NZCT Regional Support Officer, Wayne Holdt ran the course for the Club.
“The children had a great time and will be out again on Saturday mornings throughout the season. We plan to conduct another training course in December for another intake of young sailors,” says Fraser.
