I need to launch my trailer sailer single handed on the Waitemata. Looking for a place I can launch, tie up while I park the car and then set off. Any recommendations? I'm fairly central in Auckland so closer to CBD is better.


The Landing is challenging in any significant breeze from the NW to NE, even when fully crewed.  N/NE is worst.  Parking is good for traiilers aside from summer weekends (there is a parking fee) but I wouldn't recommend it for a singlehander unless you are sure of the wind direction.  It's fine in anything from SW-SE although you do get the odd wake rolling in.  Note also in very low tides there may not be enough depth to have your keel right down at the pontoon.
