In the second week of the school holidays we are running a training program for youth classes. Laser Radial, 420, 29er, Windsurfers and Catamarans. The goal of the week is to introduce sailors that are keen to step up into these classes and allow them to try out the range of boats available. The second goal of the week is to provide some training and information about this next step in their careers.
And during the first week we hold a learn to sail program.

Sailing Coach and Yacht skipper
The Opua Cruising Club is looking for a Bar Manager to run the bar and serve drinks at our busy yacht club. Located on the waterfront in Opua, we’re proud to be the social hub of the area, for locals and visitors alike.
We currently have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Bar Manager to come on board, working primarily in the afternoons/evenings, including weekends. Hours can be negotiated to suit the right applicant(s), but you will need to be flexible, working longer or shorter hours than rostered, dependent upon how busy the club is.
This is a varied job, and you’ll need to be able to work alone most of the time, carrying out all duties required, including serving, cash handling, glass collecting and stock taking. During busier times you’ll work as part of a small team, so you’ll need to be an excellent leader, with good communication skills.
This role would particularly suit someone with an interest in or knowledge of sailing, although it’s not a requirement of the role. The most important requirement for this job is the right ATTITUDE! If you can stay calm under pressure, get on with people from all walks of life, and carry out your duties quickly, accurately and always with a smile, we’d love to hear from you.
The successful applicant will have:
A current Bar Manager’s certificate
At least 2 years’ experience in a similar role
A solid knowledge of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol requirements for a club and proven ability to enforce them.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
Please email your application and CV to email@example.com
