Mahurangi weekend

Recommended Posts

Looking worse now, there are calls for it to be delayed a week, however I doubt the shore based organisers would go with that, is the Marquee and Big Band still on???

At this point Id like to remind members that we did have summer this year, 

Pretty sure it occurred on Monday this week when everyone was back at work. Here's proof; IMG_2835.thumb.jpeg.9378c78b3fe8470c5f95753d31624ac5.jpeg

You can all come to the Pahi regatta….


Wow, I didn't even know this was still a thing!

Years ago (like the 1970's) they used to have a Ladies Race in motor boats.

My mum won it at least once. I believe the last time they went, she was the only entrant, and they cancelled the ladies race from then on. 

They had a condorcraft 15' Deep forefoot cathedral hulled bowrider, with a 50hp Evinrude on the back. It was calle Raurimu, after the street they moved into when they sold the farm. The thing went like the proverbial scorched kitty, although once we loaded 8 full size adults and four full sets of scuba gear, she needed a few extra horses, ony reaching about 15 knots at full noise.

Ever wish you still had the cool stuff your parents had way back then??
