During the event, the Ōkahu Bay boat ramp will be closed to the public for launching from Nov 25 - Dec 10 but you can still launch your boat at one of the following ramps:
- Outboard Boating Club (subject to prior safety check, see obc.co.nz)
- Tamaki Yacht Club
- Westhaven Marina
- Kohimarama Beach
- St Heliers Beach.
The ramp at Tamaki Yacht Club is very exposed, and can be challenging for launching or landing at low tide or when there is any chop in the harbour. There's a northerly forecast for this weekend, so conditions will be difficult.
It is ideal for kayaks and paddle boards, and may also be used by Waka Ama while they cannot access the ramps at Akorana.
It is not recommended for launching of boats over 15 feet (4.5m), and even for small boats only when there are support crew available to assist. There is limited manoeuvring for trailer boats so we recommend that these are not launched at Tamaki Yacht Club.
Particular care should be taken around other users, particularly sailing boats and Waka Ama. Use is particularly high on Saturday afternoons, so we recommend using alternative facilities.
