The postponed GBC Club Champs are running Sunday 14th June. Briefing at 11:00am

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.

A club flourishes when everyone pitches in – when you visit GBC you’ll see that our on water activities are operated largely by our volunteers (often parents) and a few skilled coaches. We welcome all parents of new sailors to join us on the water and we are happy to teach non-sailors how to assist.

Glendowie Boating Club is the home of the fabulous Starling class.  We currently have several 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.

If you are interested in getting involved in our 2019-20 season get in touch with our Convenors. Also look out for our GBC Welcome function before each season.  Check our calendar or contact us for sailing times.  And click here for all the details about our Learn to Sail and other courses.

 Please review relevant club websites for updates on regatta postponements and cancellations

No racing today. 1 race abandoned just after start and another that was blown up while in sequence. What wind there was was all over the place.

Oh that's no good. Goodluck for tomorrow boys.🍀

ANNOUNCEMENT from Moore Coaching Services NZ

This one is for the Starling sailors out there. I am super excited to announce some camp and clinic dates.

Sign up here: www.moorecsnz.co.nz/

The first is a 3 day camp at Torbay Sailing Club 8th-10th July. This is guaranteed to be a sailing coaching clinic different to any other, with guest speakers, cooking challenges and more!

The second is a 2 day coaching clinic at Howick Sailing Club on the 5/6th September. A perfect weekend to fine tune your skills, or learn something new before the Nationals at Nelson Yacht Club at the end of September.

Stay tuned for more dates hopefully to be announced soon.

Six of our Starling sailors, and one of our emerging Optimist champions, enjoyed being back on the water, racing, today, in the Kohimarama leg of the Auckland Winter Sprint Series. Grace Still, Sophie Eaton, Zoe and Mark Mains, Rory Sims, and Aidan and William Beauchamp all made the most of the gentle breeze and no rain, to get some tiller time and catch up with friends from around Auckland, and farther afield, sailing again after the abrupt end the to the 2019/20 season.
