    They were, if they were not they couldn't appeal.  Perhaps more should offer to help the few that are fighting for us all.

    Why not petition the council along the lines of sports fields are upgraded etc for free ramps are our sports field. Once again wake up and realise we are a minority sport and viewed as elite.


    Good on you for trying but I will not be financially supporting already paying to use AK ramps etc

    It's not over yet,  the AYBA (Auckland Yacht and Boating Association) has joined the fight along with the support of the AMUA (Auckland Marina users Association inc.). 

    The first is to appeal Bayswater as by doing so this will also help the case for The Landing and other sites.

    So please consider making a donation here and perhaps add "crew.org" after your first name.



    Why werent they there at the start?? Oh sh*t this might effect us or we might loose members.Yeah right

    Thank you for your replies. I really appreciate the response so far. I have read all that stuff. And I also followed those requirements when I sailed across the Tasman to here last year (with full insurance). 

    My query is whether insurance is actually required. I can't find any mention in the Transport Act 2013 (I presume is the latest). 

    While the ANA requests insurance information, what happens if that information not supplied ( Eg self-insured)? Is entry denied? And can it be refused? Is that requirement legally enforceable? 

    It seems a little interesting that a yacht might arrive here with full insurance, but which runs out say 1 month after arrival and then does as much sailing around etc for the next 23 months with no insurance (including risks of salvage, pollution, third party etc) . And nobody (except marinas) takes any notice. If there is no legal requirement to have insurance while operating here, how is there a legal requirement to have it in order to gain entry? 

    Thank you for your thoughts 

    Seems strange sort of a requirement to me.Yes when entering a marina or slipping,but how many local vessels on moorings with nil insurance?? I found out the hard way several yrs ago,vessel that took us out,nil insurance and comment from owner,go "F" yourself. Had to make claim on mine,dont know if they ever chased him up.

    1. Complete the Advance Notice of Arrival (ANA) for all craft travelling to NZ as required under the Customs and Excise Act 2018

    The small craft/yachts Advance Notice of Arrival (ANA) form (DOC 284 KB) needs to be completed by the owner/master of the vessel and sent to us at least 48 hours before arrival in New Zealand territorial waters – 12 nautical miles.

    The ANA is a mandatory legal document required and the owner/master is liable to prosecution for not submitting the ANA in the required timeframe and for not providing the ANA in the specified form and manner.


    Other documents to supply with ANA

    The following documents must be provided and emailed with the ANA to yachts@customs.govt.nz:

    • Certificate of Registration
    • Scanned copy or photograph of bio-page of passport for all passengers and crew on board
    • Full photograph of craft/vessel
    • Evidence of Value e.g. Bill of Sale (Purchase agreement with sale price) Note: If evidence of value cannot be provided then a Marine Insurance document or New Zealand Valuation will be required at the time of import
    • Marine Insurance (full insurance)
    • NZ Boat Valuation (at the cost of the importer)

    Aucklands papa cliffs erode quite quickly, its probable that these were built well back initially.  Cliff top properties in Auckland are vulnerable

    We were intersted in a house over looking tauranga harbour late last yr,GV 1.8m,We thought y the time we organise finance etc it would sell well above,If was in the AK viaduct it would be easy 4/5m. After a bit searching found a oncil website that showed errosion rates for area,they gave it a orange status of 80 yrs before it would be unstable and condeemed. Sold for 1.3m.   Maybe time for agents to disclose this sort of stuff.

    As ex shore boy,Dad always said only time (1970s)before the houses along the narrow neck/st leonards region fell.so far holding up. Bit of a surprise about shore rd though.

    Can see insurance companies bailing out or premiums through the roof.

  6. Yet we missed out here Papakura(Rosehill) was out most of Friday chasing Carp. Bit damp but nothing major

    What I do not understand is how Metserv didnt issue a rain warning earlier. The info was there. Predict wind on Wednesday showed for Friday 70mm ph at Te kouma with NE 25 Hence why we cancelled out Wednesday night for Friday.

    Some of the videos taken on the shore of streams and old watercourses in full flow are incredible, and in fully built up areas too. Something to consider is all the trees, slash etc that's been washed into the gulf which will be hazardous for some time.

    Yes thats problem down Gisborne way.Think they are going to look at how forestry can clean up after felling..All that silt is going to smoother beds(seafood)

    Did a early morning trip (5.00am) Ponui to Collville bay hit a tree trunk ,luckly only doing 3 knts,towing kahawai lure,reported with co ordinates as we sure werent able to tow it.

    I would not by a hook 2 even for depth use only, Can set shallow water or deep and yeah showing 10m in 40m, save your money or spend $100 more on a garmin striker



    Excellent little unit,gps,tracking etc so many choices out there

    I used 4mm mohair, some brands call them wool velour. If you get your thinning rates right (which differs with temp and humidity) you shouldn't need to tip off as the paint will flow and stipple will pull back as it dries. 

    Thank you  . 2 coats hoping will efficient

  12. Many worthy yachts lying around back yards in NZ. Problem is $$ and which ones do you save? Some owners dont want to dpart or wanting top $$ "Yeah going to start soon."

    Found a lovely hull ,former Kaipara steam pinnance,visited owner and "Yeah mate going to take up to the shed soon" 3yrs on still lying on front paddock. I even located a steam engine for her. 

    Perhaps Rudolfshack should take a trip up there??

  13. Have any of you actually bothered to read "notice f race"?? It a cat 5 race .    Safety Inspections Every entry has the responsibility to ensure it is fully compliant with safety category 5 requirements. Any yacht found to be in contravention of YNZ Safety Regulations Part II Category 5 shall be subject to protest from the Race Committee or Yachting New Zealand.

    MEASUREMENTS / HANDICAPS Each yacht shall provide a current valid rating certificate with her entry as follows: 6.1 Monohull racing handicaps will be based on the Passage PHRF TCF handicap racing system and is designated automatically from the Yachting New Zealand database. All Monohull entries shall hold a current valid PHRF handicap certificate issued by Yachting New Zealand. Yachts with water ballast shall have a PHRF handicap on the basis of the water ballast. 6.2 The NZ Multihull Yacht Club will handicap all racing multihull entrants.



  14. Just home from dinner in Ponsonby and a walk around Westhaven,very few cars and marina looks full compared to previous yrs. Sign of the times??people have to work rather than the standard 3 week cruise of yester year.
