Club Sailing

Wakatere is a centreboard dinghy sailing club. Club racing is on most Sunday afternoons during our club season. Briefing 12:30pm / first warning signal 1:25pm / first race start 1:30pm. 

We have a wide range of classes across our membership with juniors, seniors and families on the afternoon start line. We welcome any dinghy class and will usually give an individual start to a class with more than 5 entrants.

- CLASSES SAILED: Optimists, P Class, Starling, RS Feva, Windsurfers, Waszps, 29er, 420's, Laser and Laser Radial, OK Dinghy, Sunburst, Farr 3.7, 470 and A Class Cats.



Visitors are welcome with an entry fee of $10 for a strict maximum of 2 Club Sundays per season. Visitors must sign on and pay the Race officer on the day. Visitor results will not count for club races.

We strongly encourage membership as we are a volunteer run club. See membership details HERE.
