The Worser Bay Boating Club is hosting its annual Hebtro Trophy celebrity yacht race on Sunday 3rd April. Commodore Andrew Paterson said that 'the aim of the day is to raise funds for junior sailing, and in doing so, to have great fun day for all involved'.

This year’s celebrity is the whole Dickson Family. 'It very appropriate for Worser Bay to have the Dickson Family as this year’s celebrities. Sailing is a Sport for life' and 78 year old Grandfather Roy is still sailing. Father Chris is still enjoying is sailing and his two girls Grace 11 and Rose 9 are Optimist sailors. The Dickson family illustrates what we all know, sailing is a 'Sport of Life. Hebtro Trophy fund raising is one of the ways we get our children to start that wonderful life long adventure.' said Andrew Paterson.

The Hebtro Trophy celebrity yacht race will take place in the waters off Worser Bay, with around 20 Port Nic keelboats, each carrying a sponsor and junior sailors. The Hebtro Trophy fundraising day is in its 20th year and continues to raise the funds needed to enable many Wellington children to get out on the water. Each year these funds give around 250 school children an opportunity to have a go at sailing, and a further 60 take part in subsided Lean to Sail Courses.

The Club also uses the funds for coaching for junior sailors over summer weekends. 'Our aim is for children and young people to experience and enjoy sailing, whether in future years they aspire to go to the Olympics or join Team New Zealand or to simply go for a cruise around the harbour' said Andrew. Several graduates of our programs supported by Hebtro funds are now making names for themselves on the national and international level, and at least one recent graduate from the Worser Bay program has set his sights on the 2012 Olympic games. These you people will be back helping with Hebtro again this season.
