This course covers the sailing aspect in detail but also covers the importance of provisioning, anchoring and watch keeping.

This 2 Day overnight yacht experience in the Hauraki Gulf will give you a hands-on experience on the wheel and talk you through the fundamentals of sailing.

The Overnighter is a course designed for the individual who has possibly sailed before and needs a refresher, or perhaps that sailor going to the next level. This course gives you confidence to overnight on your yacht and take the family on some luxurious holidays sailing the gulf and beyond.
