The principal aim of the Russell Coutts Sailing Foundation is to introduce participants to the joys of sailing and to help each sailor grow in character and personal confidence.

The foundation's various programmes incorporate coaching higher performance sailing and racing skills. Also, non-competitive fun and social events, both on and off the water, for young sailors and their families. All ages are encouraged to go sailing here.

The foundation is based at the Manly Sailing Club, Polkinghornes Bay, Manly. A beautiful sandy beach with lots of room and safe sailing conditions, north facing on the Whangaparoa Peninsula, 35 minutes drive north of the Auckland CBD.

Courses are run by accredited YNZ coaches and other experienced yachtsmen and women from the Manly Sailing Club.
