  • Intoxication
  • compulsory carrying of a means of communication at all times while in a vessel under 6m (this includes Dinghys) with the exception of board sports

OPEN DAY

Dont forget Open Day is the 28th of September 2014 this year. We would like to get as many people in the club as we can and we have a jammed packed schedule of events happening, so bring down your friends and family and show them the lovely facilities we have. The theme this year is "Its not just a yacht club" so we want to promote all other aspects as well as yachting; eg kayaks, fishing, paddleboards, jet skis etc.

CLUB SAFETY OFFICERS

We are on the lookout for anyone with a strong yachting and boating background to become a Club Safety Officer.  As some of our current safety officers have retired some new blood would be welcome. Please contact Lyle on the office number 534-3046 if you wish to know more about this important role.

CLUB LICENCE RULES

The Club has recently been inspected by the Police and we have been instructed to remind all Members that we are operating on a Club Licence and that we can only serve alcohol to Club Members and their accompanied guests.  We therefore ask that you are not offended by the bar staff's request for your membership card as proof of membership, and that all guests must be accompanied, looked after, and signed in by you the member. 

Wedding Venue

We have function rooms available for private use. Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or any celebration you wish.

The rooms face north with magnificent marina and harbour views including Bucklands Beach. Rangitoto Island is just across the water. The menus can be arranged to suit your requirements. More....
