Host boats needed for Coastguard fundraiser
The Great Boat Challenge is a charity fundraising event for Auckland Coastguard. Boat teams will make their way under power or sail from Auckland Harbour to Bon Accord Harbour while attempting to achieve a set of tasks. Points will be awarded to all tasks and the teams with the most points will win prizes. Once at Bon Accord Harbour, entrants will enjoy an afternoon of good food, drinks, entertainment and prize-giving. Not only do we need people to enter, we also need boats to put people on – can you donate yourself and your boat to support Auckland Coastguard?
