Learn to sail with the best - the Penny Whiting Sailing School
Based on the Auckland Harbour, New Zealand, over 33,000 people have taken our sailing course over the last 50 years. Open November until end of March.
During 15 hours (5 three hour practical sessions) of course time (mostly out on the water) you’ll learn the basics of sailing – setting the sails and rigging the yacht. You’ll complete the course confident, competent and capable of sailing with anyone as crew or even chartering a yacht on your own and sailing your own yacht.
Do you know someone who wants to take sailing lessons? Buy them Gift Vouchers for Christmas / Birthday or Staff incentive. It's fun to learn to take sailing lessons on a big boat. Move out of your comfort zone, try something new, meet some great people and have a whole lot of fun along the way at the best sailing school in Auckland.
It is really exciting that after 51 years of me running the sailing school, my son Carl Tiny Whiting is going to be on board teaching the classes under my watchful eye. My daughter Erin Whiting, will also be assisting and its just so great to have them both involved.
Tiny has done extensive sailing all his life, with 10 years in the Americas cup and sailing for NZ in the Olympics and he is as passionate as I with teaching people to sail with confidence and safety aboard Endless Summer.
I have weekends and afternoon sessions available and hope you can sort out some dates that work for you.
If you could go onto the book now or timetable to look at the dates for the courses.
