The Club is closed to all members to reduce the chance of infection arising from the use of the toilets and tractors. This has required the changing of the padlock on the tractor shed. We regret having to take this option but there is no other way we can rule out the transfer of infection from contact surfaces on the tractors or within the clubrooms from one person to another.
Be assured that we will take the first available opportunity to re-open the tractors for use and to resume our normal social hours
Meanwhile we have no option but to assist in enforcing the isolation decree. We are a recreational club and we have no desire to be accused of allowing our members to become infected.
The Kapiti Boating Club was founded in the 1950’s by recreational fishers from the Paraparaumu area. It grew in the 1970’s to include a yachting section, mainly of trailer sailers, supported in the junior classes by a strong local Sea Scouts organisation which the club cooperates with.
In the 1970’s the club hosted a rescue boat for craft in trouble in the Kapiti area and when the club later joined the Coastguard it purchased the craft which remains the rescue boat to this day, though the Coastguard section budded off from the club in the 2000’s.
Today the club hosts fishing competitions both by itself and in assocation with the Waikanae club and also supports other recreational clubs events, such as the annual Kapiti to Paraparaumu Beach swim.
The Club bar is open to members and their guests for the weekly social evening from 5.30 to 9pm every Friday.
