Team Racing & Training

Tauranga Yacht & Power Yacht Club (TYPBC), one of New Zealand’s top sailing clubs, has produced many New Zealand’s world, Olympic, and Americas Cup sailing champions, and many more who chose to pursue sailing as a life- long hobby.  Famous names such as Olympic and Americas Cup champion Peter Burling, 2021 World Laser champion Thomas Saunders spent their junior years growing up and sailing in Tauranga. Their success is attributed to the stunning sailing conditions prevailing on Tauranga harbor complemented by one of the best yacht club sites in New Zealand with expansive club rooms and spacious parking and rigging areas.  Tauranga is a safe, fun, and internationally renowned location for learning the art and science of sailing.
