Sail Nelson - Profile

General Information

Before establishing Sail Nelson, we looked all over the world to find a certifying authority with well structured courses, a high standard of study notes and certification that would be well recognised by visitors to New Zealand. Sail Nelson director John Moore invited the RYA's Chief Sailing Instructor to New Zealand in mid 2003. He organised meetings with sailing instructors, Maritime NZ and the NZ Coastguard Boating Education Service (CBES). At the end of 2003, CBES formed a partnership with the RYA to administer their courses within NZ. John Moore was among the first to be trained as an RYA sailing instructor in New Zealand, and Sail Nelson became a registered RYA sailing school in September 2004.

Additional Information

All courses begin and end in the the Nelson marina. We motor out through the fairway and hoist sail in the wind shadow of whatever fishing boats are in port before cutting the engine and gliding out into Nelson Haven. The Haven lies inside Nelson's unique Boulder Bank. The Boulder Bank, a naturally formed low-lying spit, virtually encloses the Haven - providing very sheltered waters without interrupting the sea breeze that gives the region its ideal sailing conditions. Beyond The Haven, Tasman Bay is a relatively shallow, protected 30 mile wide bay enclosed by some of New Zealand's finest wilderness attractions - the world renowned Abel Tasman National Park to the West, the Marlborough Sounds and remote d'Urville Island to the East and Farewell Spit to the North.
