Waikawa Boating Club

Waikawa Boating Club

Not just for boaties, the Waikawa Boating Club has a membership in excess of 800 people. While many of the members do have boats there are many more who are social or crew members who join to enjoy the club’s activities on and off the water.

This year the club is celebrating a couple of amazing wins – their accreditation as a Yachting New Zealand “Clean Club” – which they received this year for their efforts in their regattas to keep our waterways clean, and the Yachting New Zealand Presidents Award which they were rewarded with for the efforts of club volunteers for the womans regatta, and the productive and collaborative efforts in promoting Marlborough businesses to the many visitors that joined.
