It’s just a bit of rain


It takes more than a bit of rain to keep us off the water!


Despite hiding beneath the Pohutukawa trees for a bit of shelter, we were rewarded with some beautiful weather between the showers.


Hard to imagine this is the same day, Judges bay, so close to the city centre and so sheltered.


Well worth getting out of bed on a Saturday morning for…

Great to be alive

Absolutely stunning mid winter row this morning…


3 boats 12, Rowers and a very cold clear crisp windless morning.


We paid a visit to the maritime museum and hoped to grab a quick coffee but they weren’t open and the grumpy security guard shooed us away. Apparently you need authorisation to tie up there……bollocks


So we left and went back to the more relaxed and friendly Royal Akarana Yacht Club for coffee and refuelling.


Our Saturday morning rows are growing all the time despite the winter weather, there is still plenty of great days on the water to be had, If you’d like to join us simply get in touch. details on the contact page.
