The Beachlands Boating Club is a long-standing community organisation located in the idyllic sea side setting of Sunkist Bay, Beachlands. The Club provides a local community hub for Pohtukawa Coast residents with an interest in all things boating related, and offers a family friendly environment for socialising and participation in regular social events and water related activities.
Located in tranquil Sunkist Bay, the BBC is uniquely positioned literally only a stone’s throw away from the water’s edge, and the club house offers unparalleled views from the expansive deck over the Waitemata Harbour for enjoying a drink with friends new and old. Sunsets are not to be missed!
There is a Kids entertainment zone downstairs, so while parents relax upstairs the children can entertain themselves, or take advantage of the range of small water craft we have available for club members use including paddle boards, kayaks and sailing dinghies. We also run a free sailing school using Opti’s that we encourage younger members to get involved in to develop water-based skills and interests.
The Club is typically open only on weekends from mid-afternoon, but we also have a busy social calendar with regular Club organised activities such as Fishing competitions, seasonal parties and sporting events. The clubhouse is also available for hire to Club members for social events at other times.
The BBC is a volunteer-based organisation that is self-funded, and overseen by a dedicated Committee; the bar and various activities offered are staffed and organised by volunteers from among our membership. The Club House is in a staged process of being refurbished, so the facilities are bright and clean and continually being improved and upgraded.
We encourage new residents to the area to stop by for a visit to get a feel for the Club, and we welcome new members so if you would like to take advantage of the Club and its facilities, and meet other like-minded locals, we encourage you to fill out and submit a membership application found here, to become part of our organisation.
