15 June Club Meeting

  • This week we heard from three Kaikohe teens whom the club sponsored to sail on the R Tucker Thompson. For Tim Bosman from Kaikohe Christian School and twins Tuira and Terere Sofa from Kaikohe Kura Kaupapa Maori going to sea on a sailing ship was a new experience. They all survived 7am swims in the sea and climbing 30 metres up the mast to change the sails. They all learned the value of teamwork and made lots of new friends.

  • Kaikohe Rotary is proud to have sponsored all three and we are glad they learned a lot from the experience. All three said they would do it again.

  • We also heard from Lawrence Rakete who also sailed on the R Tucker, although without sponsorship from Kaikohe Rotary. The R Tucker Thompson is a fantastic initiative for Northland's young people and Kaikohe Rotary is a proud supporter.
