TBCC organise yacht races virtually all year round with a program that suits all levels of skill and competition.

Wednesday twilight races during the period of daylight saving create a great opportunity to break the week with a friendly, competitive sail with your friends and then back to the club for a meal and prize giving. Handicaps are designed to reward a good sail and to make it possible for any boat to win on the night. Prizes are generous.

For those who want to stretch their legs the Off Shore Series makes the best use of Tasman Bay with courses from 30nm to 90nm often combined with a raft up over night.

The Three Islands Series takes the boats to and from the Able Tasman National Park either in a single day or with an overnight raft up.

Later in summer there is a very relaxed Friday evening Series with white sails only, no spinnakers and a Mark Foy start, for a relaxed opportunity for the less experienced sailors and guests to enjoy the sport.

Short Handed sailing events and pursuit racing are also in the program.

A winter program for the hardcore sailors runs on weekends with many typical Nelson days, with snow capped mountains and flat, blue seas.
