Wakatipu Yacht Club has been proudly offering sailing lessons and organising sailing regattas for the Queenstown sailing community since 1979. Run and supported by volunteers, who are keen sailors themselves, the club has thrived over the past 39 years, and is planning to enter its 40th season even stronger.
The club is situated at the end of the Kelvin Peninsula, across the narrows of the Frankton Arm from Queenstown. We consider ourselves fortunate to have one of the most scenically attractive yacht clubs with some of the best lake sailing in New Zealand. We enjoy our sailing in a superb environment and whilst always competitive the club's philosophy has always been that yacht races are to be enjoyed and won on the water.
Wakatipu Yacht Club is a member of the Southland Yachting Association and is affiliated to Yachting New Zealand
