We are a sailing club, and have been sailing on these waters since 1923. We welcome sailors who share our interest to join us and enjoy this sport in our beautiful waters. 
Our Aims
Our aim is to provide a friendly and safe place where all sailors can learn to absolutely love sailing. We encourage and support our sailors to grow and develop character and confidence while looking after the environment and each other.

Why join us?
Fun – Sailing by yourself is nice, sailing in a group with and against other boats is fun. You may be very competitive and relish a good race. Or you may simply want to participate and see how you are going.  Either way you are part of a group of like minded sailors.

Knowledge – Our members have got decades of experience – it’s obvious, just don’t tell them!  Whether you are new to the sport or an old salt, nothing beats a chat about boats, tactics, and the latest race or cruise.  Our members are more than happy to chat and liberally dispense advice.


Storage – Space permitting, we can store your boat in our sheds directly by the water. Our low rates are exclusive to members.


Safety – Before each event our race officers monitor the weather conditions and assess whether sailors are safe.  The club provides support boats and communication when you are out there. You are not alone. We are there to help you if you’ve got a problem, we can take you and your boat ashore.  We carry radios and can request external assistance.

Boat storage terms and conditions

  1. You must be a financial member of the club for the current season.
  2. Boat storage is only for active sailing members, and requires a sailing membership. To be eligible for boat storage you must compete in or assist with running at least 8 club races at Paremata during the season.
  3. Sheds are allocated at the sole discretion of the club and boats must be removed if owners are asked to do so.
  4. No road trailers are allowed in the sheds.
  5. Sheds must be kept clean and gear stored properly.
  6. You must not borrow or remove any property from other boat sheds without permission.
  7. You must not change sheds, locks or boat space allocation unless the Shed Co-ordinator has granted permission.
  8. If you unlock the shed, you are responsible for ensuring that the shed is locked again.
  9. If storage fees remain unpaid, the club reserves the right to sell any boat to defray storage fees owing or to use any boat with unpaid storage fees for club purposes, such as Learn to Sail courses, or a combination of the two options.
  10. You are responsible for insurance of your stored boats and gear. All boats are stored at your risk and the club accepts no responsibility for any damage or theft of boats or gear from the club’s buildings.
  11. Boats not regularly used may be moved to a top shelf location or to a different shed at the discretion of the shed storage coordinator and/or the management committee.  Boats that remain unused must be removed (as we are always short on space for sailors who wish to sail).

  13. There is a $20 charge for replacement of lost keys
