BOOK AN EXPERIENCE

We have set up Kōkōkaha providers around Aotearoa New Zealand to deliver a day long Kōkōkaha sailing experience to classes of up to 30 students. The classroom experiences are free of charge but there is a cost for the sailing experience component of the programme. These costs vary across the country so you will need to discuss this directly with each provider.

When you register we will connect you to one of the providers around Aotearoa New Zealand. Register today to set the wheels in motion. 

RESOURCES

The Kōkōkaha sailing experience typically has two parts although there is flexibility to discuss with your Kōkōkaha provider how you want the day to flow. Most providers will split each group of up to 30 students into two groups. The first group goes sailing to experience the power of the wind while the second group undertake a set of hands-on challenges to introduce them to some of the technologies used in sailing.  The groups swap for the second half of the day. The hands-on challenges are lead by the classroom teacher while the sailing experience is facilitated by Kōkōkaha kaiako.

 

The files below provide access to risk management forms, permission slips and activities used during the day. Your provider will also give you copies of these when they arrange the sailing experience with you.
