The Little Ship Club of Canterbury was formed on the 30th October 1961.

A meeting was called and Mr A.E.W. Smith explained his conception of the Club to a group of fifteen people, including Mr Walton H. Beanland – President of the Canterbury Yachting Association.

Inspired by a navigation & seamanship class which was run by the Canterbury Workers Educational Association, the Little Ship Club was formed to undertake a large range of activities that would increase the knowledge and skills and enjoyment of its members and be a benefit of yachting generally.

At the meeting there was a general discussion and Dr D.W. Walker moved that the W.E.A. Little Ships Club be formed, and this was seconded by Mr R.A Johnstone.

The committee was duly elected and included Mr Beanland, Mr Satterthwaite, Mr A.E.W Smith, Mr V.B. Hall, Mr A.E. Curry, Mr M.R. Gray, Mr P Smith and Mr R.A. Johnstone.
