Mahurangi Regatta Saturday 26th January 2019   The Notice of Regatta and the Sailing  Instructions and other relevant files now been  posted. Please go to the Documents  page to  view or download the .pdf files. Spring Splash 2018 Labour Weekend - Bon Accord Kawau Spring arrived with weather more like summer.  The annual Labour Day Spring Splash held in  conjunction with the Kawau Boating Club was in danger of being called off due to of lack of  wind. With a Mark Foy start, the last yachts  away were left stranded in Bon Accord  becalmed and half the fleet did not complete  the course.  Martin Farrand’s Scout managed to sneak away  through the flat spots to catch Gypsy by  halfway and they had a great battle to the  finish. The mild weather made it perfect for a raft-up and a memorable after-race party. At  an idyllic evening on the mothership for the  prize-giving and dinner, Martin modestly  claimed luck for his success - but clearly he had done this before!
