A while ago I offered to use my boat as safety boat for a small group of kite boarders who intend to make a downwind run from Meola Reef and under the Auckland Harbour Bridge to the shore. They have a safety plan approved by the Harbour Master and are contributing funds to Coast Guard.
This was to have happened in the last couple of months but weather has not lined up with the right tide and gaps in the ferry timetables. The next suitable tide and ferry timetable gap is on Saturday 7 June however I am going away with my wife that weekend!
PM me if you are able to take my place in helping out on this and I can provide more info, put you in contact with the organiser etc..
Note that your fuel costs will be covered.
