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. We have a number of different classes of sailing membership to suit your circumstances:

  • Senior – a person over the age of 20 years. This member enjoys all the benefits of the club.
  • Junior – a person under the age of 20 years at the start of the financial year.
  • Family – two adults, whether married, in a civil union, or de facto relationship, or a solo parent,  living together with any of the children under the age of 20 years in the relevant membership year. The adult Family Members will be Senior members and the children will be Junior members.
  • Overseas – a person whose principal residence is overseas.
  • Student – a person over the age of 20 years at the start of the financial year and who is a current fulltime student at an approved New Zealand Tertiary Education Institute or receiving education deemed by the Board of Governors to equate to full time study.

You don’t need to be into sailing to belong to the club. For our non-sailing members we offer a General membership so you can take advantage of our facilities, off-the-water programmes and social events, members’ bar, meeting rooms for your out-of-office meetings or seminars, an Ocean Sports training center for all your boating education needs, and function spaces for your next party, big or small.
