When We Sail

Sailing occurs during the cooler months of the year, which is generally October through to the following May.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring the sailing season, the school sessions run every Wednesday morning between the hours of 10.00 am and 12.00pm – weather, public holidays and school terms permitting.

The second group sail between 13.00 and 15.00, with group three sailing between 15.30 and 16.30 and our fourth group sailing between 16.30 and 17.30.

Volunteers arrive at approximately 8.30am to set up for the morning session and the afternoon session is usually completely packed away by 18.00.

A Rota is set in place for each term and preferred ‘jobs’ can be preselected per term, to allow for planning.

This year, we have set ‘terms’ which we aim to run as:

Pre Season Program (Training for Volunteers) – Wednesday 18th September 2013 through to Wednesday 9th October 2013.
Term 1 – 23rd October 2013 through to 18th December 2013
Term 2 – 08th January 2014 through to 12th February 2014 
Term 3 – 26th February 2014 through to 9th April 2014
(Depending on Term break, the start of Term 3 may be moved forward by 1 week to 2nd April 2014).
Term 4 – 23rd April 2014 through to 14th May 2014
(Depending on when the previous Term completes, Term 4 may move forward to begin on 16th April 2014. Also, if it is too hot by early in May, we may have the potential of winding up on 7th May 2014).
