Sailing Academy - Facilities
The school has the use of the boatsheds and facilities at Lake Manuwai and The Kerikeri Cruising Club. The Cruising Club has its own clubhouse and marina on the Bay of Islands at the entrance to The Kerikeri Inlet.
Most sailing is done at Lake Manuwai and The Bay of Islands. Lake Manuwai is a sheltered man-made lake surrounded by trees and farmland just north of Kerikeri.
The Bay of Islands, a large marine recreation area on the east coast of Northland, contains 144 mostly uninhabited islands, sandy beaches and clear blue water. Combined with a temperate sunny climate it is understandably an internationally renowned sailing destination.
The Kerikeri Inlet provides calm flat water for dinghy sailing with the more open water out in the Bay used for keelboat racing and cruising.
