Heretaunga Boating Club is a dinghy sailing club located on the Petone Foreshore at the north end of Wellington Harbour. The club was originally founded in 1906 by a group of keen locals, and has been a haven for sailing mad Wellingtonians ever since.
Our club is relaxed and friendly. We have something to offer any sailor, whether you want to cruise, and afterwards enjoy our facilities, such as hot showers and a cold drink at the bar - or, if you want serious racing, there are a wide range of boat classes to choose from, each with plenty of trophies up for grabs. There is also a Rescue Boat close at hand, should the need arise.
The Petone Foreshore is an ideal playground for sailing. There is Ramp access onto a wide sandy rock free beach. Winds come from around the compass at varying strengths. A moderate southerly wind is the favourite.
