Sailing at Manawatu Marine Boating Club
MMBC Sailing is a friendly club always looking to welcome new members. If you are a keen sailor or would like to give it a go, come down and enjoy a day on the water.
Learn to sail is held on Saturdays with opportunities for both adults and children to learn. With many Optimist, Bic’s and Laser yachts for use, this is the perfect opportunity to have a go. These boats are also available for hire by groups and schools.
Championship racing is held on Sundays which sees a fleet of Lasers, Sunbursts, Bics and Optimist on the water competing in a series of races over 8 months.

If you live in the area or spend holidays at Foxton Beach and would like to meet like-minded people, the Manawatu Marine Boating Club is the place to visit. If you are not on the water, relax with a drink from the bar, tea or coffee, a meal and enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
Owning a boat is not a requirement.
