Great Sailing at a Family Focused Club

Regular racing for a range of classes.

Sailing in a mostly enclosed  part of the Manukau Harbour makes it a little unique, safe and fun experience.

Situated at Sandspit Waiuku, we are less than 25 mins from Pukekohe. If you are a sailor and recently moved to South Auckland please come along and check us out.

Junior Learn to Sail April School Holidays
