How to become a Member:

Membership Registrations for the 2022-2023 Season are open now.

Our Club welcomes new members.   New members may join here.  

You must be a full member of Lake Taupo Yacht Club to participate in the Learn to Sail programme.

If you wish to join Lake Taupo Yacht Club midway through the season, members joining after 1 January each year may qualify for a reduced membership fee.  For details email 

Existing members may renew their membership here.   Members who joined on a half year membership last season will need to complete a new membership as half year memberships are unable to be rolled over. 

The owner of trailer yachts and sportsboats are responsible for making sure that all crew members are members of the club.

Detailed instructions to guide you through the registration process are available here.
