About us

Tamaki Yacht Club is 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 cater for any centerboard yachts including Laser, Mistral, Finn, OK Dinghy and Phase 2.

We offer all-tide launching, off-street parking and a sealed rigging area. 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. This boat is available to members and guests when a rescue boat is on the water. You can also charter Lasers from Royal Akorana Yacht Club to join in our races.

For the 2019 Winter Series we are working with Royal Akorana Yacht Club to provide a training and racing experience. You can train on Saturday mornings with RAYC (details here) then sail around the corner to join in the Tamaki Yacht Club races for the afternoon. Race entry is free for those on the RAYC course, and on-water training will be allowed to help you develop your racing skills. Tamaki Yacht Club has sailors ranging from relative beginners to past World Masters Champions, so you’ll have plenty of competition at any level.

Tamaki Yacht Club is generously sponsored by Smart Marine.
