Danika presented on Kohimarama’s youth yacht club dedicated to introducing young people to sailing, and training them to love and excel at the sport. This all started in 2006 from Peter Blake’s legacy that every child should have the opportunity to learn to sail. The Team New Zealand 2000 trust provided the original funding to get the programme started, and the Lion Foundation continued to help as the programme evolve.  In 2013, Volvo Cars New Zealand came on board as the naming rights sponsor in support of youth sailing.
‘Have a Go! is a Yachting NZ programme offered to schools throughout the country, designed to give students in Years 4 through 8 the opportunity to experience the thrills and spills of sailing in a safe and well managed environment and most importantly, to have fun!  The Programme consists of a variety of activities and games which focus on the school curriculum of physical and personal development and science and the environment.
