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 - GROUP 1 COMPLETED, GROUP 2 RACES START ON 26 JULY
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. With a break now for the school holidays, Group 2 races restart on Sunday 26 July. 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:
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:
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.
We're now sharing our facilities with the Porirua Canoe and Kayak Club (PCKC) and the calendar lists events for both clubs.
