Welcome

Wakatipu Yacht Club has been proudly offering sailing lessons and organising sailing regattas for the Queenstown yachting community since 1979. Run and supported by volunteers, who are keen sailors and yachties 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.
