The world is changing, and so are we

In a few short weeks, Royal Akarana Yacht Club will vacate our current building and move into temporary offices at Auckland Sailing Club, just a short walk down the ramp.

We encourage all members to use the club before it's demolished! We are open for dinner on Friday's and for breakfast and lunch on the weekends, and sitting by the water is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Once a confirmed timeline from Fletchers has been received, we will communicate key dates via this weekly email, our website and Facebook page.

It's almost the end of an era and while our clubrooms may be changing, our values and goals remain the same. To be the home of blue water sailing, provide marine education, academies and inclusive opportunities for anyone who wants to experience adventures on the water.
