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 WINTER SERIES 2016 - GROUP 2 RACES START ON SUNDAY 31 JULY
Group 1 races for this year's Winter Series for centreboard yachts were completed on Sunday 3 July and we now have a three week break before group two starts. Registration is at the Clubroom on each racing day and opens at 0830 with the warning signal for the first start at 1000. The series runs for ten Sundays either side of the July school holidays. We're keeping the same formula as last year - three races back to back each day, three minute start sequence and (if we've got the bodies to do it) on the water start and finish.

TBBC hosted OptiSail again this year on behalf of the Wellington Yachting Association and the 2016 camp ran from Tuesday 26 to Thursday 28 January. Forty sailors took part and enjoyed great conditions on the Tuesday and a testing day round at Shelly Bay on the Wednesday in a strong southerly. With the wind picking up even more on the Thursday, the camp finished earlier than planned.
New members are always welcome. Our membership categories and fees for 2015-16 are:
* Senior A ($75).
* Senior B ($50). Senior B members cannot participate in any on the water sailing activity run at or from the TBBC clubrooms except in a support role relating to event management or safety.
* Junior ($50). Junior members must be 18 or under on 31 January 2016.
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.sporty.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 Kayak Club (PCKC), Sailability Wellington (Sailability) and Te Ara Moana (TAM) and the calendar lists all the events we're aware of for them and us.
