We are an enthusiastic group of Boaties, consisting generally of families who live on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand.
Our aim as a club is to foster safe and enjoyable water activities, mainly centred around boating as our club name suggests.
We launch and retrieve our boats from the northern end of Browns Bay beach and enjoy the use of two boating club tractors to make life easier when launching and recovering our boats. We call our tractors C-Mantis (large) and C-Squirt (small)
On our door step is the Hauraki Gulf, providing the bounty of the sea, teeming with snapper, kahawai, kingfish and scallops, world class reserves of flora and fauna and billion dollar views at every turn.
Over time this site will grow in to a resource for members and non-members. Keep checking back to get updates on the latest activities, photos and handy links.
1) Ahoy all, I am looking for nominations for the role of Club Secretary for the 2016/2017 year.
After 16 years in the role, Sandy Barnes has decided to step down, creating a wonderful opportunity for another member to join the team. Sandy has done a terrific job as Club Secretary, and we are very sad to see Sandy go. These opportunities don't come up very often, be part of a high profile local community organisation, an influential Office Bearer of the Club and one of the last surviving Boating Clubs on the Shore
If you are interested in this role, or would like more information on the Committee, I would be very keen to hear from you, please call Warren King on 021 826715.
