Welcome to Titahi Bay Boating Club

Titahi Bay Boating Club is a friendly, family-orientated club, with safe sailing all year round in Porirua harbour. Our summer programme has club racing on Saturdays, while in winter we hold our annual Winter Series with boats coming from clubs around the region to compete.

 
WINTER SERIES
  
The 2015 Winter Series will get underway on Sunday 31 May with registration open from 0830 and the warning signal for the first race at 1000. We're making some changes this year that include:
  • 3 races per day instead of 2
  • Simplified courses - windward-leeward / triangle
  • Top or bottom mark within 100 metres of clubroom to bring racing closer for spectators
  • On the water starts and finishes
  • Shortened start sequence - 3 minutes instead of 5. 
Click here for the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions. Cancellation decisions will be made by 0730 and will be published on this site by 0800 and advised to the Newstalk ZB cancellation service. We will also send text messages to all registered competitors.       
 
TBBC REGATTA
  
TBBC's annual regatta on Sunday 22 February was quieter than usual with competition from other events taking its toll on number. Those who entered enjoyed great sailing conditions in a light and variable northwesterly.       
 

Congratulations to the class winners who were:
  • Optimist Green - Nina Anderson (WBBC)
  • Optimist Open - James Bitchener (PBC)
  • Starling - Amy Anderson (WBBC)
  • Open A - David Cook (TBBC)
OPTISAIL 2015
  
OptiSail 2015 - a 3-day live-in sailing camp which TBBC hosted on behalf of the Wellington Yachting Association - is over. 26 young sailors from 5 Wellington clubs enjoyed 3 days of sailing and fun in near perfect weather from 26 to 28 January.  As usual, the camp's focus was as much on having fun and making new friends as it was on gaining more sailing experience and improving skills.

CLUB AND REGIONAL EVENTS
 
TBBC is a member club of the Wellington Yachting Association (WYA) which produces a regional calendar of events and is the controlling body for a number of Wellington Regional Championship events. The WYA publishes an annual calendar of major events around the region and this can be found on its website at www.sportsground.co.nz/wya. You can also find links to the other WYA clubs on this site.
