Sailing / Yacht Club
President Vera Mummery
Club Manager Tim Smedley
We are a down-to-earth bunch, focused on getting the most fun, satisfaction and challenge out of our fortunate position on the sparkling waters of the Waitemata harbour and Hauraki gulf. We have a programme to suit every taste, whether you are interested in besting the opposition in round-the-buoys racing, or more inclined to social events, overnight cruises, passage sailing, BBQs, and beaches. We have a comprehensive racing and social calendar and have been sailing the waters of the Gulf for the last 100 years.
A meeting held on the 23rd September 1905, by the Home Bay Sailing Club is recorded in the NZ Herald of that time. This Club is thought to be our parent and we like to think that this meeting, recorded as being the third AGM of the Home Bay Sailing Club, does place, on record, our beginnings. The meeting was presided over by Mr G.E.Adams and the Commodore elected was Mr E.C. Blomfield, the owner of the yacht “Aileen”.
