With four Sunburst yachts, King’s provides an ideal opportunity for pupils to learn and develop sailing skills. The boys who sail, do so regularly using the boats for training and racing. Invariably they learn self-reliance, water safety skills and have an enjoyable experience.


The school regularly has participants in the South Island Secondary Schools’ Sunburst Regatta sailed on the Otago Harbour and also competes with Otago Boys’ in the annual interschool. Boys also use the school boats to compete in the annual Vauxhall marathon race. 


The very well known ‘voice of yachting’ Peter Montgomery is a King’s High School Old Boy. In more recent time Daniel Meehan has been a prominent sailor on the school boy scene, both in local and international regattas.
