Ngaroto Sailing Club

Lake Ngaroto has been a popular sailing venue since the 1950s. The clubooms were opened in 1967 and there is secure boat storage.

Originally the club catered for motorboats and sail but a lake bylaw now prevents the use of motorboats (apart from patrol boats) on the lake and only sail and rowing or kayaks are permitted on the lake.

This ruling makes for an ideal (quiet) environment for yachties to enjoy a days sail or paddle.

Ngaroto is small relative to Rotorua or Taupo, but a course leg of over 1 km is possible when the wind blows from the northwest. The lake is an ideal venue for both centreboard and trailer yacht racing.
