Established in 1895, Royal Akarana Yacht Club is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most accomplished yachts clubs in both keel boat and dinghy sailing classes.

It is considered the home of blue water sailing and hosts an array of other marine-based activities including a successful Sailing Academy for kids and adults which has created world champion sailors. 

The new Hyundai Marine Sports Centre is opening Spring 2018 and provides purpose built sailing, marine sports, marine education and hospitality facilities including a waterfront cafe and bar. 

The Club sails and caters for Optimists, Open BIC, RS Feva, 420, 12ft skiff, 18ft Skiff, A-Class, 29er, 49er, and Flying Fifteen classes.  Keelboats are accommodated in racing and cruising divisions with an emphasis on passage, coastal and offshore events.
