How it all began

The first conception of a boating club for small boat owners, particularly boats that could be transported by trailer, was the idea of John Mallitte, editor of Sea Spray magazine in 1955.

In August 1956, 19 interested people gathered for a meeting chaired by John Mallitte, and it was agreed that a Club to be known as the Outboard Boating Club of New Zealand be formed along the lines of the OBC in America. The discussion and planning led to a public meeting held in the Auckland Sunday School Hall and was attended by around 70 boating enthusiasts. This was the inaugural meeting of the OBC of New Zealand.
