Clubs NZ Disaster Marine

Pleasant Point Yacht Club located on the Christchurch estuary is the only yacht club in Canterbury to have lost everything in the September 2010 quakes.

Within two weeks of the first quake, the 416 sqm combined clubrooms and boatshed building was pronounced a total loss and we had removed all our gear from it. It was demolished in June 2011 and the site deemed unfit to build on.

In the immediate years after the first quake, we lost members, put the Club into recess for over a year and then opened our 2013/14 season at a new site in the South New Brighton Park using shipping containers.

All this was happening while the Club’s Committee were dealing with their own business and domestic earthquake issues.

It’s been a long road from having no home to sail from, to starting at the new site in the South New Brighton Park, but things are looking up. With funding from Christchurch Earthquake Appeals Trust and help from Fulton Hogan Construction, we have built a new launching ramp, our membership is growing again and now are poised to build a new clubhouse and boat shed … but we need to find additional funding over and above our insurance payout to achieve our goal.

Our insurance payout will only cover about one third of the cost to rebuild these facilities.

So we are appealing to our friends and family, supporters, past members, the New Zealand wide yachting and sporting communities, and those we haven’t met yet who just want to help out a grass roots club looking to get back on its feet again.

This Give A Little page is your chance to help us reach that goal.

Many thanks.

Pleasant Point Yacht Club was founded in 1921 at Pleasant Point Domain (now called the South New Brighton Park) on the shores of the Avon-Heathcote estuary in Christchurch.

In 2021 the Club will celebrate its centenary, the very year Emirates Team New Zealand will defend the Cup ... and we plan to be watching that in our new Clubrooms!

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Pleasant Point Yacht Club, Christchurch.
