In conjunction with the New Zealand International Film Festival, Wellington Ocean Sports has been offered a great fundraising opportunity to replace more wet weather gear and safety equipment for our students as well as allowing you to see the film Maidentrip.

This is a great event to bring all your friends and family along to and show them what the sport of sailing can be all about! This is one of only two screenings in Wellington during the festival, so make sure you don’t miss out.
Maidentrip is the story of New Zealand born Laura Dekker and her boat Guppy as she becomes the youngest person to sail around the world solo.
Jill Schlesinger’s admiring, nicely rounded portrait draws extensively on Dekker’s own footage recording life aboard her yacht Guppy. Dekker chats to camera about her state of mind, captures some of the wonders of the sea and barely hints at its terrors. Schlesinger meets the intrepid sailor on land where we see her practical self sufficiency, her easy bonding with other ocean wanderers and her forthright rejection of media attention and the trappings of celebrity.

Tickets are limited, so get in quick and book your seat to see this amazing journey of a great young sailor.

Date: Sunday 11 August 2013
Time: 5.15pm
Place: Te Papa
