Cen­tre­board Cup makes a re­turn

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The sec­ond an­nual Cen­tre­board Cup will take place this week­end at Sloane’s Beach in Herne Bay.

The re­gatta is run by the Pon­sonby Cruis­ing Club with the start/fin­ish line set just off Marine Pa­rade Re­serve.

There are two classes in this year’s edi­tion for Cen­tre­board­ers with un­der-18 and over-18 sec­tions. Mul­let boats will also race on the day.

Last year’s event cel­e­brated the Rich­mond Cruis­ing Club’s cen­te­nary. The club is based in a small boat­shed at Sloane’s Beach.

The beach of­fers a close-up view down the start and fin­ish line and there will be shore-based ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids and live mu­sic.

The Pon­sonby Cruis­ing Club is en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to come down and cel­e­brate the sailors and boats.
