Welcome to Glendowie Boating Club

The Glendowie Boating Club (GBC) is a family oriented sailing club focusing on teaching novices how to sail as well as Optimist, P Class, Bic, Starling, Feva and Mistral class yacht training and racing. The club racing is held on Sundays from Spring to Autumn. The GBC also participates in an Autumn series run by Howick Sailing Club (each sunday in May) and a fortnightly Winter centreboard program run by BBYC.  This means we can meet demand from sailors wishing to maintain sailing as a year round activity. The GBC also takes part in yachting regattas sending sailors and boats North and South to compete against other yacht clubs.

We currently have some highly ranked Starling sailors sailing and racing at our club as part of our fantastic Starling fleet, as well as a large fleet of up-and-coming Optimist sailors.

We offer boat storage lockers for active sailors, meaning that it’s easy to come and sail at any time, without the hassle of trailers and transport.

Our 2018-19 Season is underway – why not pop down to the club around high tide on a Sunday, check out the facilities and meet our team.  Check our calendar or contact us for sailing times.  And click here for all the details about our Learn to Sail and other courses.

Edited - mistake in random leg scores for last race (double points round the island). Boat 8 placed 5th in the island race for 10 points, boat 9 placed 4th for 8 points. Which means they both tied with 26 pts each. Maraetai winning the tie. Murray’s Bay ends up 2nd with 25 pts.

Here's GBC's Jack Manning (black boat) heading to a big win in Race 1 of the Wakatere Junior Regatta last Saturday. 29 Starlings raced and Jack was the only GBC sailor in the 160 boat regatta. The rest of the day didn't go so well for Jack - he also led the next race to the finish but scored a UFD. With no discard for the event, Jack had to count 30 points and dropped down the order. The great news is that Max Scott (Maraetai), who is part of our very strong Tuesday training group won the Traveler Series event with all four GBC Tuesday squad sailors (Max, Maraetai's Callum McRae, Howick's Peter Eaglen and Jack) finishing in the top 11. Well done to our Starling squad sailors and coaches.An excellent fleet, lovely conditions and four quick fire races made for a closely contested 2018 Wakatere Junior Regatta on Saturday. Part of the Starling Association Traveler Series. Congratulations to Max Scott from Maraetai for the overall win. Photo from race 1.
