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.
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.

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.
