The Club

Come Sailing;  Sailing for Life

The TYPBC is amongst a very small number of NZ sailing clubs, in that we cover everything from Learn to Sail in small Optimist dinghies, to national and international centreboard sailing and windsurfing, through trailer yachts and mulithulls to keelboat racing and cruising locally and overseas. 

We also support women’s sailing with a dedicated WoW (Women on Water) division. Disabled sailing is covered with the local Tauranga Vision Impaired club through to World Champion blind sailing competitors.

The TYPBC has a number of World Champions, all of whom still come down to race with everyone and spend time talking and coaching sailing. We have National Judges to assist with rules interpretation and resolving on-the-water disputes. There are National Race Officers to help run National Championships, also YNZ trained Club Instructors to teach sailing and safety.

The TYPBC is a registered charity under the Charities Act (CC46505), is an incorporated society and affilitated to Yachting New Zealand.

The club caters for new sailors generally starting around 7 to 8 years old,  through to those who have been members for over 60 years.  There are many members who “Sail for Life”.
