Tutukaka South Pacific Yacht Club Inc is based at Tutukaka on the east coast of Northland, New Zealand, and offers a year-round programme of predominantly-keelboat racing and social events. (Youth sailing for 5-17-year-olds on the Tutukaka Coast is provided by a separate organisation - click here for details).
Over the years, the club's fortunes have ranged from the heady days of backing an America's Cup campaign and plans for a substantial clubhouse, to a more humble membership and financial base. The focus is now on friendly competition for local boats.
The club is an incorporated society and welcomes both New Zealand-based and overseas members.
