Our 109 member Yacht Clubs are the lifeblood of sailing in Yachting New Zealand.

Each of our YNZ affiliated clubs are unique in what they offer to their membership from Taipa in the North to Bluff in the south. Yachting New Zealand has a network of regional support officers who work closely with clubs from grass roots upward and help regions develop capability. Clubs are offered resources for smooth running of the club based on best practice and training opportunities for volunteers, coaches and officials.  We have developed comprehensive learn to sail courses and programmes to help schools connect to their local club, ensuring the ongoing growth of the sport.
