Lake Taupo Yacht Club
Lake Taupo Yacht Club is a family yacht club on Lake Taupo, providing a racing and cruising programme, introducing young people to sailing, and training them to love and excel at the sport. Our local season more or less corresponds with Daylight Saving over the warmer months but a Winter sailing programme is also held for larger boats.
We have a great clubhouse on the Lake with fantastic views and a boatshed a few metres away. The boat shed houses our fleet and members' centreboard boats. In addition we have our Club launches P2 and P6 moored in the Harbour nearby. Trailer sailors have access to secure pens in the Nukuhau launching area and some members have permanent moorings in the harbour.
The club currently has approximately 75 family members with about 25 dinghies and 15 trailer sailers turning out to sail on a full club day. We have hosted regattas with over 150 boats.
Like many clubs, we are a voluntary organisation run by generous people who willingly donate their time and effort.
If you are interested in racing or learning to sail at our club please contact us.
We have some exciting events coming up and as usual we also have a full programme of local racing. This year LTYC will host a number of specialist regattas. Feel free to pop along to the clubrooms on a Wednesday evening to meet fellow sailors or watch the proceedings from our observation decks.
The clubrooms are also a spectacular venue to hire for conferences, weddings and parties.
