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.

TBBC is running a handicap racing series on Saturday afternoons over the Spring and Summer. The Summer series was scheduled to start on 3 February but this was delayed to 10 February. There will be three short races each afternoon with the warning signal for the first race at 2pm. Registration at the club room from 12:30pm. Visitors are welcome and the entry fee for all sailors each day is a gold coin donation. The series is being run on a handicap basis using personal handicaps (see the sailing instructions for an explanation of how these work). Full details can be found in the Notice of Race and Sailing instructions.
