Worser Bay Boating Club

The Worser Bay Boating Club is a yacht club based in Worser Bay, New Zealand. It was founded in 1926 and has become a leader in the New Zealand-specific Sunburst and Zephyr class dinghy yachts. There is also a strong emphasis on youth sailing in Optimist, P-Class, Starling and 29er dinghies. Of late, Lasers and 12-ft Skiffs have become increasingly popular.
