If you want to go kayaking but don’t have too many clues about which boat or paddle is best for you, are unsure of the ‘Rules of the Sea’ or how to interpret weather maps and forecasts? And would like someone to give you a bit of instruction on the water?
Then, the FREE workshop on Saturday 10th October held at Coastguard Northshore on Beachfront Lane, Browns Bay, Auckland 0630 from 9am – 4pm could be a good place to start.

The morning will be interactive sessions and include a chance to look at personal and group gear such as VHF radios and Personal Locator Beacons and the chance to discuss what to do in an emergency. The afternoon will deal with planning and going on a short paddle with a skills clinic.

Bring your lunch, boat and paddling kit. If you have a query or are new or from out of town and don’t have any gear contact Shaun Maclaren on 021 2867412 or shaun@kask.co.nz and he’ll endeavour to help you out with equipment to try.

This is a Kiwi Association of Sea Kayaking (KASK) initiative supported by Safer Boating New Zealand.

Hey neighbours,

In the lead up to the 2020 election, Stuff is keeping voters up to date with what’s happening in their electorate, through Neighbourly. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates in the running to be East Coast Bays’ MP.

At the October 17 election, New Zealanders will have the opportunity to choose their regional spokesperson.

Through the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) voting system, those enrolled can vote for the party they want as well as a local representative.

Why does my MP matter?

The person elected will be the voice for your region in Parliament. If you’re having trouble getting entitlements or dealing with Government departments, they can help. If your community needs funding for certain projects or activities, or there isn’t enough healthcare in the area, the elected MP can step in and help.

Hi neighbours. Transport authorities have pulled double-decker buses from the Auckland Harbour Bridge and are warning it could close completely during a massive storm forecast for much of the country. this weekend.

Meteorologists believe the storm could be “one of the most widespread severe weather events this year”.

Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) general manager of transport services Brett Gliddon advised motorcyclists and those driving high-sided vehicles to avoid the bridge.
