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.

The 2015 Winter Series got underway on Sunday 31 May and the Group 1 races finished on 28 June after five successive Sundays with good racing conditions and 14 of the planned 15 races completed. After a break for the school holidays and a cancellation on Sunday 26 July, Group 2 started on 2 August. Registration will be open from 0830 and the warning signal for the first race will be at 1000 for each day of the series.
We've made some changes this year that include:
  • 3 races per day instead of 2
  • Simplified courses - windward-leeward / triangle
  • Top, bottom or wing 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'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 - 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.
