Wellington Radio Yacht Club

The Wellington Radio Yacht Club sails right here at the Seaview Marina. We also sail at Aotea Lagoon and Whitby lake. If you like full size sailing, or are interested in learning to sail, you may be surprised at just how realistic, challenging and fun these small boats are to sail. The sport attracts everybody from rank beginners to Olympic or Americas Cup level sailors. You can sail with just our club, or at regional, national or international regattas all around the world.

Our club has a focus on the very popular IOM (International One Metre) class, and our locally designed and built AC15 yachts, modelled on the 1995 Americas Cup winning Team NZ boat. The IOMs are arguably the most popular and competitive radio sailing class. They are sailed all around the world and have a strong following in New Zealand.

Come and see us at the Wellington Boat Show. We will be sailing there on the weekend. We’d love to see you, show you what we do, and talk to you about getting involved in a great way to spend an afternoon.
