2019 - 2020 Membership Application


Wakatere membership requires a commitment to club competition and helping on race days throughout the season.

Members (or parents of junior members) will be added to a duty roster at some point during the season for afternoon club racing.

Members must recognise the club by entering regattas as a Wakatere Boating Club member.

Club membership is required to participate in all coaching programmes. Bookings are only accessible to club members.

Membership is an annual subscription and runs from 1st September - 1st September each year.

Junior - $180 (18yrs or under)
Senior - $285
Family 2 (2 family club members) - $340
Family 3 (3 or more family club members) - $370
Tertiary Student - $95 (full time 18-24yrs)

We do not offer pro rata fees.


Membership includes affiliation to both Yachting New Zealand and the Auckland Yacht & Boating Association. Membership to a club affiliated to YNZ is required for entry to all national and major regattas in NZ.

Members will receive a YNZ Members Card as proof of membership and be able to access the YNZ app on smartphones. YNZ affiliation comes with a variety of benefits and discounts. See link below.

YNZ Members cards are posted once a year, immediately following the confirmation to YNZ of our new season membership. For anyone joining Wakatere later in the season, please contact Wakatere if a card is required for regatta entry.
