Sailing

The sport of sailing is deeply embedded in the history of the Tairawhiti region, and races were organised as early as 1874. The present Yacht Club was formed in 1946 by a group of youthful enthusiasts who, in spite of a lack of facilities and varied fleet of yachts enjoyed sailing and wished to develop the sport on a more organized basis.
