Tamaki Lasers


Welcome to Tamaki Yacht Club

We a centreboard yacht racing club just west of Mission Bay overlooking the sparkling Waitemata Harbour. We race on Saturday afternoons through the summer, and host a fortnightly winter series as well as larger open events. We race on Saturday afternoons through the summer and host a fortnightly winter series. We cater for any centerboard yachts including Laser, Mistral, Finn, OK Dinghy and Phase 2.


We have a Laser available for loan (suitable for experienced sailors only), so if you’re in town without a boat you can still join us for a race. You can also charter Lasers from Royal Akorana Yacht Club to join in our races, or even do their training in the morning then join us for coached racing in the afternoon.


Tamaki Yacht Club is generously sponsored by Smart Marine.
