We are a small friendly boating club that opened in 1974 that holds various sail boat racing series between September and May each season. 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 during the Winter Series races (and the occasional rum) in the off-season.

Our annual Tall Ships regatta is held in early January each year since 1976. A great day out for the family with loads of fun on the water with Tall Ships, Classics and a All-Comers fleet, an evening hangi and a couple of bands (in the clubrooms and under a large marquee.) 

In 2018 the Short Ships event and the revamped Motukiekie Island sandbar cricket event (an event from years ago started up by popular demand) entered their third year. It’s hoped to get more sailing like the Easter Laser Day for Junior sailors and other non-sailing boating events started or rekindled this season.
