Opening Day Images: Getting into the new season

Wakatere Boating Club - Opening Day 2011

Many clubs in Auckland and New Zealand are staging their first club racing of the new season.

Sail-World's camera was down at Wakatere BC on Auckland's North Shore, at Narrowneck to catch the young sailors on the water. The club is also running a entry level windsurfing program, with oversight from a few top board sailors in the area, plus coaches.

Today the windsurfing group was headed off on a cruise to Rough Rock at the entrance to the inner Waitemata Harbour.
