Welcome to the Christchurch Model Yacht Club

Please feel free to have a look around. Don’t forget the photo gallery. 

The Christchurch Model Yacht Club is situated beside Lake Victoria in Hagley Park, right in the middle of the city. The lake is ideal for model yachting, and the club is strong with a general membership of 100 or so sailors.

Wednesday Windlers sail every Wednesday, as early as they wish to arrive, and use a course that takes them walking around the lake in alternate clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations. The break for lunch is a great time for social chit-chat and discussions on boats (of course!). Saturdays are race days with rostered Race Officers and courses with as good a beat in them as possible.

The first Saturday of the month the Club holds its races at Lake Rua. A venue acquired after the earthquakes in Christchurch. It is a lake very suitable for the IOM class and the club has held several of their championships there.

We have several strong classes of model yacht in the club. The popular ‘J’, the EC12, the 1 Metre (IOM) and a few Marblehead and Witchcrafts plus some classes that are not sailed frequently but are dusted off on special occasions.

Enjoy your visit!
