"We love introducing new comers to the sport of blokarting and delight in seeing students of all ages and abilities gain new found confidence." ( Ian, Velocity Karts)
With basic instruction we can have people sailing almost immediately but there is always scope to hone skills and maximise the performance of the craft, and nothing quite beats the thrill of a race. We have a range of sails for the varying wind conditions, sailor size, confidence and ability.
Blokarts are easily sailed by people with disabilities, (paraplegics compete in the open events at World Champs).

Blokart sailing is an international sport. Our goal is to hold the Canterbury Secondary Schools Blokart Sailing Championship in the future. To do this we are building a group of interested and enthusiastic sailors.
Blokarts allow students to experiment with wind and sailing dynamics. Begin by mastering the art of manoeuvring around a simple course that includes tacking, jibing and running with the wind. Once the basics have been covered, progress to competitive sailing and hone your skills all the way to international standard. As well as sailing you'll be taught to rig, de-rig and safety check the blokarts, and along the way you'll pick up the blokart vocabulary.
Risk Assessment Management Systems are in place.
All safety gear is provided, however students should bring a water bottle, and wear warm clothes and covered shoes or sneakers.
