LEARN TO SAIL AT GLENDOWIE BOATING CLUB
The first Introduction to the Sailing Holiday Programme is now open for registrations for all sailors wanting to give sailing a go. Running from the 15-19th January, the GBC 5 day (half day, mornings) holiday programme is an excellent way to experience sailing and the beautiful waters of the Hauraki.
Sitting on the waters of the Tamaki River the Glendowie Boating Club offers an unsurpassed location for young sailors to try their hand at one of New Zealand’s corner stone sports. With a group of young and experienced coaches, Glendowie Boating Club graduates themselves, they will be taken through the YNZ Learn To Sail 1 course and come out having learnt all about the Optimist boat, the basics of sailing and increased confidence on the water

Does anyone else find that the Felton Matthew lights have caused chaos on Kohimarama / St Johns roads? It now takes up to 20 minutes to make what should be a 6 minute journey to Glen Innes or Stonefields. The lights took long enough to be set up but now there is a constant logjam from St Heliers Bay Road through to Felton Matthew Ave. It is particularly exacerbated by location of the bus stops and by cars parked on the side of the road. Should we as a group be asking/telling the Council to get it sorted ?
Act now to beat the water shortage:
• Install a rainwater tank (resource consent fees waived).
• Maintain your tank (check guttering is clear).
• Install water saving devices (shower head/taps).
• Install a water sensor to monitor your usage.
