"There is little better than a day out on the water. Whether it's a gentle sail, a blast up the coast, lines over the side, a dive to explore the bottom, or a get together with mates....

...there is little worse than finding yourself in trouble in that patch of paradise, wishing that you knew more, or that your family or crew could get you and your boat safely back to shore if ever they had to."

Coastguard looks out for the safety of every person who goes to sea off our coast or enjoys any of the region's harbours, or beaches.

Can you please pass  on our thanks to Coastguard Mana.

Thank you both for supporting our Club’s 90th anniversary! The weather wasn’t really on our side, but we still got nearly 50 kids in the water, and a whole lot more in the Club. The Chocolate Treasure Hunt really helped to make this the best opening day in many years, as we involved the kids rather than a few old salts. This kids went away very happy with handfuls of Whitakers Chocolate and over $400.00 in prizes donated by the club. Our crayfish auction raised around $2,000.00 for our Sailing Academy.

Once again, thanks so much for supporting our club!

A 15ft runabout with 3 people on board broke down just offshore from Kaitawa Point (under the radio masts, south of Grandfather Rocks) just before 10pm. They were able to sit on anchor to avoid being blown onto the rocks while Coastguard Mana responded.

We towed them back to their vehicle that was at the launching ramp between the bridges at Paremata.
