Bucklands Beach Yacht Club is situated in popular Half Moon Bay, Auckland, New Zealand, a marine suburb with a local population drawn to the area by the attractive water activities. The Club is well placed to offer facilities for training and encouragement to young enthusiasts as well as experienced yachties and boaties.
Several international and Olympic sportsmen and women are members - among them Barbara and Bruce Kendall and Joey Allen of Team NZ.
The ongoing investment in J24 Keelboats is giving young sailors the opportunity to advance their skills. An Optimist Training School is teaching large numbers of youngsters basic sailing skills. Advanced coaching in competition sailing has shown results in National Contests.
