Welcome to Royal Akarana Yacht Club

Welcome to Royal Akarana Yacht Club, the home of blue water sailing in New Zealand. Established in 1895, RAYC has a long and respected offshore racing history, but recently we have expanded and now have a very enthusiastic junior division as well as a successful Marine Academy. RAYC is more than just sailing. We are the home club to over 80 surf ski paddlers and waka ama athletes. In 2015, the Auckland Sailing Club and RAYC merged and the 18′ Skiff & 12′ Skiff sailors now call RAYC home.
