The annual Mahurangi Regatta is on this weekend! (24-27 Jan) The main event is Saturday 25th.
It is a great event for families, and ALL vessels are welcome, you don't have to have a Classic. I went up last year, and is is a great spectacle, and well worth the trip. The regatta party is family friendly, and afterwards (or the next day) a trip up the river to town in the dingy is well worth while. If it is hot, take your togs for a swim in the quarry on the way past.
I'm going again this year - to watch and take pics. Who else is coming???
Further details and entries are here http://www.mahurangi...eral-Format.php

Updated charts support Wellington’s multi million dollar cruise ship industry
Updated nautical charts released by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) will support the growing number of cruise ships visiting Wellington Harbour.
LINZ Acting Group Manager Hydrography, Jennifer Ryan, says a lot of work has gone into making sure the latest versions of the two Wellington charts meet the needs of the industry, as well as other professional skippers and recreational boaties.
“Cruise ship visits to the capital have doubled over the last eight years, and the vessels are also growing in size. This means having accurate navigational information is more important than ever,” says Jennifer.
“We’ve used new survey data and consulted extensively with pilots and the Harbourmaster in updating these charts.”
Figures from industry body Cruise New Zealand show that the 2013/14 cruise season contributed $34.8 million to Wellington’s economy, and supported 688 jobs. The 2014/15 season is forecast to contribute $35 million and to support 693 jobs.
The updated charts cover Wellington’s wharves, the harbour entrance as well as the inner harbour. Updated information includes changes to lights and light sectors, and more accurate representation of wharves and marinas.
“Another priority has been to include details useful for recreational boaties. One example of this is that we have extended the charts to now include Seaview Marina.”
The two charts, NZ 4633 Wellington Harbour and NZ4634 Wellington Harbour Entrance and Plans of Wharves, are available from approved retailers. Digital versions are also available to download free of charge from the LINZ website.
