Opening in 1974, we are a small friendly boating club located on the water’s edge in Matauwhi Bay, Russell. The banner graphic above, features our clubhouse and is detail from a larger painting of Matauwhi Bay by Helen Pick.

Winter racing series between September and May, women’s and youth sailing and various interclub races with Opua Cruising Club make for an interesting racing programme in the stunning waters of the Bay of Islands.

We are of course an affiliated member of Yachting New-Zealand. Their logo is shown at the bottom of this page, below the links to our sponsors.

Since 1976 our annual Tall Ships’ Regatta has been held in early January. It is a great day out for the family, finishing off back at the clubhouse for the Prizegiving and a Hangi with Music around the Marquee. Tall Ships, Classics and All-Comers make up a large fleet which is always a spectacular sight.

The date for the 2021 Tall Ships is 9th January.
