Coromandel IRB Driver Development Weekend
Sat 23 Jul 9:00AM - Sun 24 Jul 4:00PM
Waihi Beach LGS, 2 Beach Road, Waihi Beach, Eastern - Coromandel
Tel: 0275 377 233
This is a two day IRB development event and is for anyone who is wanting to start to learn to drive an IRB, or for those already on the driver pathway who would like to improve their skills as they work towards their IRB drivers exam.
The purpose of this development weekend is to provide an opportunity for new/trainee IRB Drivers to:
- Gain further driving and crewing hours in a supportive environment
- Improve skills with the assistance of experienced instructors and developing IRB instructors
- Enhance local instructional skill bases and cross club collaboration
The event will consist of two full days IRB training, with an overnight stay at Waihi Beach LS on the Saturday night for those that would like to stay (this is optional you are welcome to stay elsewhere and attend the event daily).
To enable us to run this event successfully we also need IRB Instructors, trainee IRB Instructors and people who already have their IRB drivers award to help with water safety and mentoring candidates.
If there is a high demand for places, priority will be given to Coromandel club members. All registrations will be closed on 14th July and applicants will be contacted after this date to confirm places.
