New Plymouth Yacht Club: Time capsule & future vision

new plymouth yacht club photos

For a club focussed on dinghies, cat and trailer-yachts, it’s remarkable that New Plymouth is also the custodian of an epic ocean-racing challenge that’slasted for 50 years and still going strong.

The Solo Trans-Tasman Yacht Challenge has been sailed every four years (except for Covid buggering up the schedule) since 1970. The most recent race – a fleet of nine intrepid sailors including one woman skipper – set off on Easter Sunday, 9 April, on the often-gruelling passage from New Plymouth to Southport in Queensland. The race this year is sponsored by the Taranaki franchise of Ray White Real Estate.

The sailors of the New Plymouth Yacht Club, established 1939, are not faint-hearted themselves, sailing every weekend outside the breakwater, in the regularly stern breezes and seas of the ‘Naki coastline.

When I visited the club a few weekends ago, sailing coach Wayne Holdt (who is also the Yachting New Zealand Regional Development Manager for the lower North Island)  was too busy watching over their Optimist and Starlings race fleet out there in 28 knots of breeze to yarn with me on Saturday. A couple of bedraggled young sailors needed towing home.

The club also has a ‘Rainbow Fleet’ (all bright-coloured sails) of 60 trainee Optie sailors, who yes, sail in the relatively sheltered waters within the harbour breakwater.

The fleet at New Plymouth is just like sailing used to be. Dominated by 17 Paper Tigers, those single-handed catamaran thrill machines designed by the recently-departed Kiwi legend Ron Given; and as Wayne tells me, the plywood boats are still the fast ones, compared to the fibreglass models.

Then there are about seven of those Bruce Farr classics the 3.7s – also sailed single-handed, with the sailor out on trapeze. Plus a dozen or so Hartley 16s. This is Real Boats Central. The club also owns eight 420s and two Elliot 5.9 trailer-sailers for use in their schools team racing and adult Learn to Sail programmes. Which are going great guns, bouncing back with much gusto after Covid.

The club also started a Women on Water programme as a post-Covid initiative, expecting about 10 takers. More than 40 women turned up! The 420’s and the Elliots have been busy.

And while Wayne and I were chatting, sitting on the well-loved couches in the clubhouse, he pointed to a 40-foot keelboat just heading out of the harbour into the Tasman swell and a stiff breeze, with Women on Water candidates aboard. In keeping with its ‘Dinghies rule!’ theme, New Plymouth Yacht Club has only two keelers on its books. They tend to spend their summer in the Marlborough Sounds, an overnight sail away.

Back in the day, a Taranaki Cruising Club was established and a big clubhouse built at the other end of Ngamotu Beach. That morphed into the New Plymouth Sportfishing and Underwater Club. Which, incidentally, has installed the cleverest freshwater wash for boats returning from the sea – a comprehensive spray up under the hull from spouts set in the ramp.

The two clubs are separated by the expanse of Ngamotu Beach and the waterside road Ocean View Parade, which houses curiosities such as sundry anchors set in concrete, an artwork in the form of road signs pointing to landmarks of central psychic importance to locals, and the preserved Moturoa No 4 oil well beam pump. They used to pump oil right from this beach.

A terrific historical photo in the clubhouse shows their original opening day in 1939, with cars and crowds and sailboats spread out over the whole beach.

An interesting stat: the club’s membership in that first year was about 200 people. It’s stayed the same all these years, and remains at that number now.

Beyond the Solo Trans-Tasman event, the club keeps a high profile in small boat racing. On the weekend before Easter, they hosted the OK Dinghy National Championships, and those for the 3.7, with fleets of 25 boat and 29 respectively. Local sailor Paul Moriaty finished second in the 3.7s In 2004, they hosted a very well-attended World Championships for A Class Cats and, they rotate with Napier and Taupo hosting the Optimist North Island Championships.

new plymouth yacht club photos

In 2004, they hosted a very well-attended World Championships for A Class Cats. And together with the Yacht Clubs at Napier and Taupo, they rotate the hosting of the Optimist North Island Championships, which always attract huge fleets.

It was a pilgrimage to WOMAD, also back after the Covid hiatus, that took Lesley and I to New Plymouth. But hey, we should have come much earlier!

And also, we should have stayed for the start of the Solo Tasman Race. One of the skippers, Lucy Te Moananui, had arrived well before us. But on the day of my visit, she was back out at sea, completing her 500nm qualifying passage.

Other notable skippers in the race are two Kiwi brothers Malcolm and Alister Dickson, one from Motueka, the other from Sandspit, whose version of brotherly togetherness is meeting in New Plymouth to promptly take off again, each on their own boat. Plus three Aussies. [See box for the full line-up].

The New Plymouth Yacht Club volunteers are also part of Sailability Taranaki, a programme for disabled sailors who compete at Waitara in eight Hansa 303 sailing dinghies.

The thing about New Zealand’s regional yacht clubs is their disproportionate contribution to the rich heritage of top Kiwi sailors. New Plymouth Yacht club is no different. Beyond the staunch disabled sailors mentioned above, the club also counts these fine sailors among its alumni: Craig Monk , Olympian in the always-testing Finn class, and legendary America’s Cup sail-trimmer and winch-grinder (hard to imagine he started as crew on his Dad’s Sunburst!); Ross Field, Whitbread Round-the-World and Volvo Ocean Race winner, and now Arctic cruising exponent; and Sam Street, recent winner of the Wasp World Championships, and a contender for 470s in the Olympics. Jack Parr a foiling windsurfer who went to the Youth Worlds this year. And of course Wayne Holdt, who continues to contribute to New Zealand sailing despite never having left his home town.

And you can see why. The sailing off New Plymouth is superb. If sometimes a wee bit on the stern and windy side. But then that’s how the best sailors are formed, eh!. BNZ

Wow, That Was Some Finish!

The finishing line approaches, two great sailing days, smokin’, the race over the weekend…., four septuagenarians mid-tasman, from port to fourth, 2023 race start, three retire from challenge, the first 24-hours.

Wow, what an exciting and interesting start to the Ray White NP Solo Trans-Tasman Yacht Challenge. Malcolm Dickson on Sarau tacked on the start line to be the first to cross. Mister Lucky laid the mark in a single tack, being the first to round. The fleet disappeared quickly over the horizon in 15kn from the NW. As darkness fell Sarau was heading NW with 5 of the fleet following a more westerly direction, converging close together. An IRC dual was occurring between Mister Lucky and Melting Pot. Allegresse returned to port late afternoon, from 12nm out to resolve an issue onboard. She and Mike Carter headed back out at first light and are making great pace and ground today in a very uncomfortable sea. Overnight conditions have been busy and challenging with 44kn and a very bumpy sea. Skippers reported all good onboard during this morning’s schedule, if a little wet. Lucy onboard Nerissa K developed some sail and electronic issues with her chartplotter and AIS late yesterday afternoon. Her sail issues saw her crabbing at 2-3 knots overnight. Lucy has been unsuccessful in resolving the issues in the rough choppy sea and is heading back to port. Meanwhile back in Port Taranaki, Apriori remains on her mooring suffering autopilot issues during the prestart checks. Malcolm Dickson and Sarau currently lead the fleet 180nm from the port, doing 6.5kn. Mister Lucky and Mark Hipgrave are leading the IRC division at 165nm with a VMG of 5.9kn

Introduction

Sailing into Plymouth, one can begin to imagine just how tenuous their foothold in the New World must have seemed to the Pilgrims. With the captain of the Mayflower threatening to “turn them and their goods ashore and leave them” in Provincetown, and sail for England, they had little choice but to settle in this difficult and commercially unpromising harbor. {OPP p71}

Exploring to the head of the bay 15 years before the Mayflower, Samuel de Champlain. . .

. . .saw only an arm of water extending a short distance inland, where the land is only in part cleared up. Running into this is merely a brook not deep enough for boats except at full tide. . . {Voyages p78}

Even today, the entrance is remote and a little wild, with its eroded bluffs, vast mudflats and powerful currents.

But the town has nice facilities for visiting sailors and some unique shoreside attractions close to the harbor. Plymouth is not a convenient stopover if you’re mostly enroute to someplace else, but it makes a strong case on its own merits for inclusion in a Cape Cod Bay itinerary.

The masts of the 1950s-built replica Mayflower II are prominent along the Plymouth shoreline.

The harbor at Plymouth is nearly 5 miles from open water. With the sun setting in your eyes and the outgoing current pushing hard on your bow, those miles can seem twice as long. But the entrance is merely long, not difficult. There is plenty of water to get in and out at any tide, and the channel is well marked. The range lights leading into the mooring area, however, are widely reported to be nearly indiscernible among the lights of town. {cs}

The outer channel, from Gurnet Point, past Brown’s Bank to the Duxbury Pier Light (aka “Bug Light”) does shift year to year, and the buoys sometimes move accordingly. Following the Chart Kit’s pre-printed course between Gurnet Point and Bug Light may take you outside the channel.

At the narrow part of the channel off Bug Light the current can run over two knots. And where the various channels converge just inside the Light there can be some strange rips.

Also note that there is a security zone around the Pilgrim nuclear power plant, on Rocky Point south of Plymouth Bay. In 2002, the zone extended about a half mile off shore.

At the elbow of the dredged channel, behind Plymouth Beach, is a narrow anchorage. It is remote from the bustle of town and harbor, but not from the traffic in and out. The deep water in the Cowyard is also used as an anchorage, but it’s only suitable for fair weather, and is also subject to traffic.

More secluded are the anchorages west or north of Clarks Island. They are over three miles from town, however, and feel exposed in a westerly of any force.

There isn’t room to anchor behind the breakwater, but there is generally a mooring available in the well-sheltered field between the breakwater and town. Sailboats are concentrated in the east of of the dredged mooring area, where in 2009 there was typically 8 feet at low, with 7 feet in a couple places, 9 feet in others.

Guest moorings throughout the harbor are handled by the Plymouth Yacht Club, whose launch monitors the uncommon VHF 08. The Club does now take reservations for moorings, with an online form available. Their clubhouse is at the south end of the harbor.

Neither the Harbormaster nor the Plymouth Harbor Launch Service, both located on the Town Wharf, is in the transient mooring business.

Just north of the yacht club and convenient to the heart of town are the facilities of Safe Harbor Plymouth. With over 100 slips, there is usually one available for an overnight visitor, though reservations are recommended.

The dramatically eroded cliffs of Gurnet Point mark the entrance to Plymouth Harbor.

‘Bug Light’ sits at the confluence of channels running north to Duxbury, south to Plymouth, and straight ahead to the former Plymouth Cordage Company site.

Not for navigation. charts are not updated. , going ashore.

Plymouth has a working waterfront in the modern sense: whale watching, charter fishing, restaurants, motels and shops all cater to the town’s visitors. Commercial fishermen and ferries use the big wharves.

Most prominent on the harbor is Mayflower II, a 1950’s reproduction of the ship seminal in New England mythology. Onboard, surprisingly well-informed interpreters describe the Pilgrims’ voyage, illuminating the techniques and hardships of 17th century seafaring.

If you push beyond the gift shops ringing Mayflower and the nearby, uh, temple, you can find half a dozen attractive little parks and gardens along the waterfront. There is a Pilgrim Trail that follows Town Brook a mile and a half inland from Brewster Gardens.

The Town Wharf, at the north end of the harbor, is home to the whale watching and fishing fleets, and a magnet to shops and restaurants.

Main Street, parallel to Water Street and one block in, is an extensive and vibrant downtown commercial district. You’ll find antique shops and art galleries, along with Mexican, Thai, Indian, and pizza, plus a cafe or two with wi-fi.

Did I forget to mention the Rock?

new plymouth yacht club photos

Looking over the the Plymouth Rock Temple to the mooring area and breakwater.

One hour ashore.

Visit Plymouth Rock, in its outsize, Greekish Temple just south of Mayflower, and you’ll still have 55 minutes to walk around town.

Off the Beaten Path

Even on a busy day in the fall, the gardens seemed to attract more ducks than people

Maritime History

Or you can walk about a mile north from the Town Wharf along the waterfront to the mill complex of the former Plymouth Cordage Company. They manufactured rope on the site from 1824 through the 1960’s; at one point they were the largest ropemakers in the world.

Plymouth sprawls a bit farther than it’s comfortable to explore on a truly rainy day, and the big attraction,  Plimouth Patuxet , is 3 miles out of town.

Pilgrim Hall Museum  completed a major renovation – including a wing for changing exhibits and a new installation of their permanent exhibits – in May 2008. It’s located just a block up from the waterfront.

new plymouth yacht club photos

This little bridge over Town Brook in the pretty, quiet Brewster Gardens is a short walk from the harbor. According to a sign in the Gardens: “The brook was a major contributing factor in the Pilgrims’ decision to settle at Plymouth.” Champlain may have derogated it, but the spring-fed source of water must have looked good to anyone getting off the Mayflower.

The PYC launch (VHF 08) will take you to the clubhouse. Plymouth Harbor Launch Service (“Lightening” on 09) runs service to the Town Wharf, and charges per person.

There are dinghy docks at the State Pier (by Mayflower) and at the Town Wharf.

The yacht club and Brewer’s have showers. Public restrooms are also available at the State Pier, along with lots of trash barrels for a small discreet off-load.

On Water St, by the Town Wharf, is a Tourist Info Center.

Fitting Out

Diesel, Water & Ice are available both at Brewer’s and the Town Wharf

There’s a Tedeschi’s at the left end of Main Street.

Hey, everyone! Here’s an update circa fall 2021: The Plymouth Harbormaster has a few moorings at $67.50 night, along with a launch service and very nice onshore facilities. They are on Dockwa, and they are very friendly and understanding (when weather intrudes, they’ll do a same-day cancellation.) Here’s another important update: There is plenty of water all the way into the mooring field. Hail them on 16 and they’ll walk you in. Launch runs til sundown and dinghy dock is a slugfest so plan your evening accordingly!!

Take a look at what architects pitch for a redesigned Cape Coral Yacht Club

new plymouth yacht club photos

New details, photos, and a video have emerged on the proposed changes to the Cape Coral Yacht Club Community Park, changing it from an Old Florida feel to a 'Key West' vibe.

The city plans to present these updates on the Yacht Club at this week's committee of the whole meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday in council chambers at 1015 Cultural Park Blvd.

Here's what we know.

Yacht Club changes explained

Cape Coral's  Yacht Club Community Park , which includes a yacht basin, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a ballroom, and a beach, has served as a popular attraction and staple for the city since the 1960s, built and open just a few years after  the city's inception in 1957 by brothers Jack and Leonard Rosen .

In 2018, voters approved a $60 million expansion of the city's parks and amenities through the Parks and Recreation General Obligation (GO) Bond. Part of that was intended for the Yacht Club.

The Cape Coral City Council originally planned to close and begin work on renovations for the park in  2021 .

But then Hurricane Ian struck the city on Sept. 28, 2022, delaying the project with the council eventually opting to revamp the whole area, with the city pointing toward the  high cost of repairs and being over FEMA's 50% rule  as justification for moving forward with new buildings and amenities.

Longtime residents and former city officials opposed the plans - however, they could not sway the council to change its mind on the new plans.

What's featured in the new Yacht Club?

The  current plans  include a new two-story community center to replace the ballroom, removing the tennis courts, rearranging the area to accommodate a four-story parking garage, a new restaurant, and a new 14,500-square-foot resort-style pool.

Current parking at the park; including for boats, vehicles, and boat trailers, amounts to 551 total spaces.

The proposed changes would bring a four-story garage with approximately 685 parking spaces, 15 surface spaces at the main building, 46 boat trailers, and 158 boat slip spaces - totaling 904 parking spaces.

The new two-story community center would have 47,000 square feet and include a new ballroom, concession, history room, exterior balcony, storage and meeting space, and a multi-purpose hall.

Previous discussions estimate the cost of the project to be as much  as $100 million .

Demolition has begun

Cape Coral has already begun the work toward these changes as demolition started this month.

The city will demolish the main buildings and attached amenities of the Yacht Club, including the ballroom building, the Tony Rotino Center, tennis courts, pool, and harbormaster.

Johnson-Laux Construction, a full-service construction management firm that operates out of Winter Garden, has been contracted to demolish and deconstruct the Yacht Club for $987,716.04.

The firm is also tasked with  preserving a portion  of the old ballroom building, which includes interior ceiling beams, stonework, a fountain, and interior doors.

Construction will  not affect the beach area.

What's next? When's the completion?

A public meeting to review and showcase current Yacht Club designs will be held on May 7.

The city is still in the design phase and has no estimated timeframe for completion.
