"Blokarts are the only land based sail craft that go upwind like an AC45"

Paul Beckett (2011) - the inventor of the blokart.

Blokart sailing is a new and exciting sport attracting young and old, able and less able around the world. Christchurch is a great place to sail blokarts thanks to our regular winds and variety of locations.  The Canterbury Blokart Club is based at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, the former Wigram Air Force Base. We occasionally sail at New Brighton Beach when the tides are right. The Canterbury Blokart Club was established in 2004 to further the sport in Canterbury, through fun activities, coaching and racing. Come on out to Wigram (access from Harvard Avenue) and try blokart sailing.  We are there every Sunday weather depending, from midday.

Enjoy watching the Canterbury Blokart Club Members racing and having fun at a range of locations.

Come and give it a go and get the “Blokart Grin”.

Or join us on Facebook and follow the fun.
