Royal Akarana Yacht Club
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 opened in September 2019 and provides purpose built sailing, marine sports, marine education and hospitality facilities including a waterfront cafe and bar. It was the perfect location for the 2019 Hyundai 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 world championships.
The club sails and caters for Optimists, O'pen Skiff, RS Feva, 420, 12ft skiff, 18ft Skiff, M-Class, 29er, 49er, and Flying Fifteen classes. Keelboats are accommodated in racing and cruising divisions with an emphasis on passage, coastal and offshore events.
