Welcome

Welcome to the Website of the Otago Yacht Club Inc.

The Otago Yacht Club is the leading yacht club in Otago with it’s origin dating back to 1892, making it also one of the oldest yacht clubs in the region.

We run regular racing including ocean, coastal and harbour events which cater for keelboats, trailer yachts and centreboard dinghies. Refer to our online calendar to look for these events.

We operate a busy slipway and maintenance yard catering for boats up to 12 tonnes. Read more.

The clubrooms have just been refurbished and cater for a variety of private functions and for local organisations to hold meetings and events. Please contact us if you wish to make a booking for your function.

On Sunday mornings throughout the season we run ‘learn to sail’ programmes which cater for all ages. Read more.

Visiting sailors are made welcome and often participate in club activities both on and off the water.

We are currently reorganising our mooring facilities to include the pontoons we have recently made and acquired.

Our trailer park caters for up to 40 boats with the pile moorings hosting another 25 boats.

New members are always welcome. You can find a contact person here.
