About Membership

Welcome!

Welcome to the heart of dinghy sailing, wind-foiling and watersport activities on Auckland’s North Shore. With an impressive record of breeding national and world class sailors, the Club is all about providing opportunities for anyone keen on having fun on the Hauraki Gulf. 

With club racing on Sunday afternoons and coaching throughout the week, we know that sailing is only one part of the Club’s experience; the inherent benefits can be equally important - building friendships, learning life skills and developing resilience through competition and adventure. 

As a volunteer run organisation we work hard to ensure sailing is well supported afloat & ashore. Become part of our Club and enjoy the values that run deep within it - respect, heritage & pride, endeavour, safe & supportive, inclusive.
