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 on Sunday mornings with boats coming from around the region to compete.


The club is now on Facebook and we are using it to share news about upcoming events and to publish photos and videos when available.

We were so busy with building and decorating that we didn't manage to get our Spring Series underway so this season we are going to run a Summer and then an Autumn series to make up for it. The Summer Series starts on 8 December and all the dates for both series are in the calendar below. We'll be running three races a day with registration open at the clubroom from 1230 each day and entry by gold coin donation. Visiting sailors are welcome.

We expect to have a mixed fleet and so will be using a combination of yardstick and personal handicap to adjust finishing times and even up the competion.

TBBC will be hosting the 2019 OptiSail junior sailing camp on behalf of the Wellington Yachting Association (WYA). The live in camp runs for three days starting on Wednesday January 23 and finishing on Friday January 25. The camp is open to junior Optimist sailors from WYA affiliated clubs who have completed a Learn To Sail course and are sailing in Rainbow or Green Fleets at their clubs.

The camp provides an opportunity for young sailors to develop their sailing skills and to make some new friends in a safe but challenging conditions on Porirua harbour. Places are limited to 25 sailors and we currently have 25 sailors registered and 0 places available. There is always a chance that we will get a late withdrawal so if you want to go on the waiting list, please submit a registration form but don't make a payment until a place is confirmed.
