Sailing Programme


At the Ponsonby Cruising Club, we offer a selection of keelboat racing options throughout the year and we try to keep as smooth and professional as possible but our emphasis is on having fun!

After a fun day racing on the harbour, come back to the clubhouse for the informal prize giving, the bar and galley will be open.

See below for course information and general sailing instructions. A

Notice to all skippers and crew members from the Westhaven Marina Office:


If you are a crew member using Westhaven’s race codes, please be aware that codes will now allow access to the marina piers from 2pm – 9pm on weekdays and 7am – 9pm on weekends and public holidays.

Westhaven says that all customers value security, and that sharing race codes increases risk to both your boat and property.  Westhaven reminds customers that codes should not be shared or used for any reason other than racing.  Many of our customers do not participate in yacht racing, and we must respect the security of their property.

In order to continue issuing a race code, our expectation is that the code is only used for the purpose of racing crew access.

If you are a regular crew member, it is recommended that you apply at the office for a swipe tag that will allow you 24/7 access to pier gates. The cost is $30 and you will need photo identity. ​​​​​​​
