Established in 1857, we are the oldest sailing club in New Zealand, a history that we are proud of and that has been documented in the book, Sailors of 41⁰ South: Stories from the Nelson Yacht Club 1857-2007. Copies of the book can be purchased from Nelson Yacht Club. You can also find out about the history of Nelson Yacht Club by visiting The Prow website.
