Opua Cruising Club also has a very active social scene, with regular get-togethers, events, and fun nights down at the club. See the Events page for a full calendar and up-to-date details of all forthcoming events both on and off the water at Opua Cruising Club.
We have a busy yacht racing calendar that runs all year round. The Summer Series includes Ladies racing, Fleet racing in 3 divisions, 2 handed racing and Friday night Rum Races. The Winter Series has either Rum Race or Ladies racing on alternate Sundays.
The Opua Cruising Club runs regular overnight and day cruises around the Bay of Islands, where barbeques and petanque are regular features! You’re welcome to join us, even if you’re a member of another club.
Our dinghy sailing programme is a great way to get adults and kids into sailing, or allow those a little more experienced to improve their skills.
Join the club!
