Kerikeri High School has established a strong sailing reputation in recent years winning several national and international titles. Former students have gone on to compete in major world ocean races, The Americas Cup and The Olympics.
Building on this reputation, the school started a Sailing Academy in 2000. In a half or one year course, students are given a well rounded mix of theory and practical sailing skills leading to internationally recognised qualifications. The Academy is run by three tutors with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
