More On Racing...

  • The Club sails on Saturdays and/or Sundays from September through to April. We also run a winter series for those who are keen.
  • Sailing times vary to coincide with incoming tides.
  • Handicap racing ensures all sailors have an opportunity to compete on a fair basis and take home some pewter, without the need to invest in titanium or carbon-fibre composites.
  • One Sunburst and five Zephyr class boats at the Waimak
