The Electron Yacht

Our Yachts are Electrons designed by renowned New Zealand Yacht designer and boat builder Des Townsend. First launched in1985, currently 985 Electrons have been manufactured. Many are raced in NZ at multiple venues, the Cook Islands and other international locations, while several are housed and raced on Super Yachts.

These yachts are not toys; but crafted scale boats that will be finely tuned on the day to suite the conditions.

Required Skill to Compete 

No previous skill is necessary but it does give you an advantage if you have some Yachting Skill and a basic understanding of Yacht Race Rules. Our expert instructors will be there to guide you.

The Venue

The deep water lake at the Action Matakana Campus is an ideal venue and has been set up with permanent Markers and Buoys to cater for all wind and weather conditions.

The Weather

We sail in most conditions but Yachts do require wind. If the wind is absent,  or is too violent  on the day you have booked you can undertake another Action Matakana Activity or delay until the weather conditions improve

Typical Programme

We normally begin with 30 mins to practice sailing your Electron and familiarise yourself with the Controls, Mark Rounding and receive an introduction to race rules.

This is followed by 1 Hour Scratch Racing and 1 Hour of Handicap Races or Match Racing.
