    Mahurangi Regatta - New Zealands' Biggest Wooden Boat Event - 100+ Sail & MotorBoat Photos

    Last weekend the weather gods smiled & the annual Mahurangi Regatta saw 100's of New Zealand's best classic wooden boats assemble in one spot for a magical day. Enjoy the photo gallery :-)

    Better for the motorboats than the sailing boats, at least until late in the afternoon and the small boat fleet based on the beach had to be off the beach due to the access being closed so a lot of us gave up and went home. Sad, some flexibility on the part of the organisers would have been helpful.

    Lots of fun, we haven't raced for a couple of years but we used to do them all through the 80's and 90's. Its a great spectator event and party at Scotts landing after is not to be missed.
