The friendliest SAILING club out west

There is something very special about French Bay Yacht Club. A small, community focused club with its clubhouse cantilevered out over the picturesque Manukau Harbour. Dating back to the 1950s, the club is where people come to sail and enjoy a range of other water activities. For 2017-18 we've got a brand new fleet of junior Learn to Sail dinghies, another new safety boat, and a massive change to our club through the construction of the rigging deck out over the water. These changes have made FBYC a more pleasant place to hang out as a family over the weekend and to spend time on the water with friends messing about in boats.
