Catch up on the latest sail boat results or find details on the sailing instructions, the latest handicaps or the Course Sheets. Boats are looking for crews (no experience necessary) so come and visit us at the clubrooms.

We are a small friendly boating club opened in 1974 with a sail boat racing series held between September and May each year on Wednesdays, every other Friday and monthly at the weekends. A Womens racing series, the Inter Club with the Opua Cruising Club and the Junior Sailing are held during the summer each year. Keep warm by the fire and the Winter Series races (and the occassional rum) in the off-season.

Our annual Tall Ships regatta is in January each year and in 2018 the Short Ships event and Motukiekie Island sandbar cricket event (an event from years ago started up by popular demand) enter their third year. It's hoped to get more non-saling boating events started or rekindled this season.
