Sailing School

Here at Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club we aim to make being on the water fun, enjoyable and accessible to all.
Located at the end of Sulphur Point we provide a range of sailing and windsurfing courses for all ages and abilities.
The stunning views and gentle sea breeze of Tauranga Harbour creates the best possible environment to learn to sail.

Our YNZ and RYA qualified instructors follow the basic skills syllabus provided by Yachting New Zealand with excellent sailing equipment.


If your child has never sailed before but might be interested in a Level 1 program, come down on January 12th and 19th from 10 AM to 2 PM for a taste course. Bring $10 and chat with some of the centreboard parents as the kids get taken out for a sail with an experienced coach. Email with any questions.
