The club races in eight classes. There are mnay instances of three generations of sailing families being actively involved in the club. The club has stuck by its traditons, one of which, in conjunction with the North Shore City Council and local heritage society is to maintain the traditional racing tower. On Opening Day, heritage racing is sailed, with startes off the tower and an offshore mark, rather than the usual patrol boat starts.
