  1. Remember those days when the clubhouse board was filled with little notes everywhere so you could let others know what was going on. It was a nightmare organising everything.
    I think Viki has done an amazing job on the website and no no one has any excuse to bring a few beers down for the party after the next event.

  2. website so interesting and well done. we all enjoyed having your group down at Lake Victoria on Sat. for the model yacht racing, with great photos and video.


  3. We are planning a sailing trip South & would hope to be in Lyttelton by mid November. We may have a delay from COVID so here’s hoping. Our ship is a Kauri cutter 47 feet long that has sailed most of the world. I look forward to meeting you all.

  4. Hi! I have just heard about your club and just wish I lived in the area and could be involved. Unfortunately, I live in Wellington now but, in the past have sailed, fished, and dived your waters many times, and have a few stories to tell.
