Welcome to Charteris Bay Yacht Club

Charteris Bay Yacht Club has its home on the sunny side of Whakaraupo (Lyttelton Harbour), a scenic half hour drive from Christchurch city. We are a volunteer-run club with a strong emphasis on family. We offer great Learn to Sail Programs for both adults and children, with progressions to junior training fleets. The club sailing season runs from October through to April with regular club days with well-run racing and a great social side. We also host many junior and senior regattas throughout the season.

As part of our commitment to sustainability and protecting the marine environment we are part of the Yachting New Zealand Clean Club program and we endeavour to put these values at the forefront to all our club activities.

Charteris Bay Yacht Club is a great place to sail. We are friendly folk and we welcome new members of all ages to join us.
