Welcome to the Russell Boating Club Russell, New Zealand


Catch up on the latest sail boat results or find details on the sailing instructions, the latest handicaps or the Course Sheets. Boats are looking for crews (no experience necessary) so come and visit us at the clubrooms.

If you can support our sponsors that would be great as they contribute to our boat club and the wider Russell community through the supplies and services they provide.

We are small friendly boating club opened in 1974 with a sail boat racing series held between September and May each year on Wednesdays, every other Friday and monthly at the weekends. A Womens racing series, our Inter Club with Opua Crusing Club, a Winter Series and Junior Sailing.

Our annual Tall Ships regatta is in January each year and in 2018 the Short Ships event and Motukiekie Island sandbar cricket event enter their third year. It's hoped to get more non-saling boating events started or rekindled this season.
