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.

 
 
OPTISAIL 2015
  
Registration is now open for OptiSail 2015 - a 3-day live-in sailing camp which TBBC is hosting on behalf of the Wellington Yachting Association. The camp will start at 9am on Monday 26 January and finish at 4pm on Wednesday 28 January and costs $125 including food and accommodation. As usual, the camp's focus is as much on having fun and making new friends as it is on gaining more sailing experience and improving skills.  
  
We've got room for 35 sailors on the camp and they'll need to register no later than Friday 16 January. Word and pdf versions of the registration form are now available as is a copy of the information sheet for sailors and parents and the event flyer.
 
To whet your appetites, here are some pictures from the 2014 camp. The 2015 programme, weather permitting, will include all of the activities you can see here. 
 
Monday was spent on the waters in front of the club:

 
and Tuesday morning saw everybody sailing out of the harbour and around to Shelly Bay for games, drills and morning tea:
 

 
and we finished Tuesday with a night sail:
 
 
Wednesday's weather was perfect and the morning was spent on drills and games:
 
 

and we finished the camp off with a team challenge:
 
 
and an on-the-water lolly scramble
