Centre Board Division
The Whangarei Cruising Club Center Board Division is based in Parua Bay. A yacht storage compound is attached to the club house.
The club has a small fleet of 420 yachts to foster a stepping platform for the young sailors keen to move up in this exciting sport. High Schools use these boats for inter school yacht competitions and from this you can expect our future National representatives in other classes and thence onto the Olympics.
This is an extremely important function of the Whangarei Cruising Club.
The Opti class has become the modern international design for competative one class sailing and for youngsters to learn in. The club has a fleet of these craft so come on down try it out. Youngsters is a bit tongue in cheek though as these little craft are also raced by teenagers.
