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. Here’s the link to our season roster.
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.
