Launch parade at Mahurangi a great hit

Once again the launch parade through Sullivan’s Bay at Mahurangi was a great success, with more than 25 launches (a very unofficial count!) doing two laps through the bay past the assembled crowd on the beach. This is definitely one of the great highlights of the Mahurangi Regatta weekend – and one which hopefully grows with more launches joining next year.

Participating launches (in alphabetical order): Alpheus, Ferro, Juanita, Jocelyn, Karewa, Korara, Kumi, Lady Margaret, Lady Pat, Laughing Lady, Lucille, Nereides, Nikosia, Ngarunui, Primanu, Otira, Raiona, Ronaki, Sea Fever, Tasman, Te Arahi, Te Honu, Tirimoana, and W1. Apologies to anyone we missed, there were more who turned up on the day and participated. A few photos of the parade are below. Photos courtesy Jason Prew.

Lots more photos and video still to come of the Mahurangi Regatta racing – watch this space!
