Join the Club


We like people to think of the club as their ‘other’ place, a city bach by the sea, a meeting place on the harbour’s edge, a comfortable place to play, to do business, to socialise and to relax at, right in the heart of Wellington City’s iconic waterfront.

If sailing is your thing then we have a comprehensive year round sailing programme that is the envy of many a city around the world. We have a wide variety of sailing opportunities from harbour races, to cruising, to regattas, to offshore racing, to social sailing, to night racing and much, much more.

You don’t need to be into sailing to belong to the club. We have a wide range of facilities and programmes which you are more than welcome to take full advantage of. These include a year round programme of social events, yachts to take your family and friends out for a sail, two bars, meeting rooms for your out-of-office meetings or seminars, an ocean sports centre for all your boating education needs and function spaces for your next party, big or small.
