Its about lifestyle, what you save being on the piles adds up to a lot of new sails, bottom jobs etc etc. For regular racers you pretty much have to be on a marina.

I think that depends on your definition of 'regular'. Three times a week, yes.

Once a weekend or once a fortnight maybe not. Not sure how many owners have the time to sail (race) three times a week. I'm sure there is a magic formula between time, money and the inverse relationship to the time available to earn money. I know I haven't discovered it yet...

More to do with proximity to clubs, that said if you only race the SSANZ then no need for a marina. Even once a week the ease of a marina cant be beaten and if you are in central AK then its pretty much Westhaven

If we are going for a sail we normally leave the river the day before and anchor the night at Arkles. Like I say not as convenient but a good compromise for us.

If you think Westhaven is tough now, wait until the last of the licences expire in 2029. Then the fun will really start.
Or maybe AC/Panuku developments will have to sell it to fund the CRL overrun.

Who gave permission to sell Westhaven  to these Panuku scumbags anyway? Who the f#ck are they?  I thought it was supposed to be owned by Auckland City, i.e US the RATEPAYERS.

Panuku is another one of these so called Council Controlled entities, same as AT, Watercare etc. Basically means they are answerable to no one and most of our ie ratepayers,assets sit in these bodies so they can be sold off at any time.

As marinheiro said... Council appoints at least 50% of the board. I'm not sure of the current formal ownership structure, but it was formed from the merger of Auckland Council Property Limited and Waterfront Auckland.

 

The marina was owned by Ports of Auckland until 2004 when it was sold to the government. In 2010 Cabinet transferred ownership to Panuku (or one of its predecessor organizations).
