                         Wellington Classic Yacht Trust

           Ensuring an appreciation and engagement in Wellington's sailing heritage

WCYT is a registered charitable trust (CC49281) formed in 2010 dedicated to the preservation, restoration and above all, sailing of small vessels with a significant history to Wellington and the region.

The Trust was initially set up to rescue the oldest surviving Wellington-built racing yacht, Lizzie from destruction.

We primarily operate out of Clyde Quay on Oriental Parade,Wellington.

We exist to share our passion for the history of these vessels and the sport of yachting with the wider community; and encourage ownership and use of such vessels to ensure their continued useful existence.

If you you think you can help, or you know of any small vessel in the region in danger of being lost, please contact us.
