For young sailors who are passionate about the environment.

Auckland, New Zealand

To be confirmed

Year 11 - 13 sailors from Yachting New Zealand affiliated sailing clubs

$750 (plus there are limited scholarships available)

2020 PROGRAMME CANCELLED

In partnership with Yachting New Zealand, BLAKE Inspire for Sailors brings together 30 young sailors from yachting clubs all over New Zealand for a week-long, ocean experiential learning adventure in Auckland.

During the week, delegates learn about topical environmental issues facing New Zealand from inspiring experts in the field and heroes from within environmental and sailing communities. They experience sailing on board Sir Peter’s legendary Lion New Zealand in the Hauraki Gulf, visit pest-free Tiritiri Matangi Island to experience a thriving ecosystem, learn about the legacy of Sir Peter Blake, take part in marine science field trips with some of New Zealand’s leading scientists and marine experts and spend a day with Emirates Team New Zealand.

Most importantly, sailors return home with new friends, networks and leadership capabilities and strategies to start driving positive change and start leading a sustainable future within their communities and sailing clubs.

For more information email Bhakti Patel at bhakti@blakenz.org or phone (09) 307 8875.

Due to the COVID-19 situation the 2020 programme scheduled for July has been cancelled.
