Centreboard Cup makes a return
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.
