2012 Jollyboat National Championship, Clarks Beach Yacht Club

The 2012 Nationals were held at Clarks Beach YC last year.

Neil, Peter and the team at CBYC hosted a well planned and superbly executed regatta over three days on the southern shores of the Manukau. Murray and Kim ran some great racing on the water with a tightly bunched fleet and strong showings in the results from all the participating clubs. In the end, Maraetai retained the Mermaid. Colin with his ace crew Ben won the two handed, Matt won the single handed with Rene taking the handicap trophy. Full report here

Where are all the old Jollyboats ?

The Jollyboat has developed from its original concept as a family weekender into a modern, fast competitive racing dinghy. The Class Association is looking to make contact with anyone who has a Jollyboat that's not being used and will help you sell it. Contact our sales team here.

Suitable for all ages the Jollyboat boat caters to any family as it offers the chance to sail competively in a variety of combinations. Singlehanded, with two adults, adult and child, two kids - all are catered for.

Whilst predominantly raced in the Auckland region, boats are sailed throughout New Zealand.

If you are looking to build a new Jollyboat the association has built a mold allowing you to complete your boat in only a few weekends work and be on the water sailing. More details can be found here and for sails, spars and equipment please visit our technical section. We are also going to be launching a build at home kitset during 2010. Stay tuned.

NEW ! : Keep in touch with the fleet
