The popular Sailing...Have a go! programme will be a feature of the Youthtown Aqua Fun Zone, where schools on Thursday and Friday will come take part in a range of aquatic activities. At YNZ’s Sailing...Have a Go! stand, kids will compete in a relay to put on sailing gear, pack an Emirates Team New Zealand Spinnaker into an Optimist and race remote control Wind Warriors.
