About the Boat Club
The Dunedin Boat Club was formed in 1929 to encourage, sponsor and promote boating, sailing and yachting for pleasure and to foster fellowship of its members through social activities. The club encourages and supports the protection of the environment.
Club activities include social functions, participation in numerous Dunedin cultural and civic events, racing programs, cruising, kayaking and more.
The affairs of the Club are managed by a Commodore, Vice-Commodore, Rear Commodore, Secretary, Purser, and an eight-member Board of Directors.
The General Membership Meeting is held the third Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Dunedin Boat Club, located on the west side of the Dunedin Municipal Marina. The monthly meetings address a wide range of topics such as cruising, boating safety, member’s travels and local issues that affect the Club, presented by members and guest speakers.
Applying for Membership
Prospective members must attend two General Membership Meetings (sign-in is required), participate in and complete a “good of the Club” activity, and complete an application.
