Since 1963 small
boats have sailed and raced on the Panmure Basin, a
volcanic crater connected to Auckland's Waitemata Harbour by a narrow channel
and the Tamaki Estuary.
The club has
concentrated over the past fifty five years on training junior and senior sailors and
providing friendly competition on
the Basin's sheltered tidal waters. Easy access, low fees, a safe
environment and a fleet of yachts available for use have made PLSC a popular club
for beginners and Sunday sailors alike.
