 Boaties should be aware that the tower will not be manned from the end of May through until October.

 It is important that any boaties going out should have at least two means of communication and that in the case of an emergency go to CH16 or by cellphone to 111.

 A big thanks to the volunteers who gave their time to man the radio in the tower over the summer. I know at times it can be a thankless task but I have been assured by those boaties that do call up regularly it is appreciated.

 Safe boating.




“Smoking on the Outside Deck of the Waikanae Boating Club”

In the latter part of March 2018 we received notification from the Wellington Regional Public Health Board informing us that the deck in its current configuration does not comply with the “Open Space Criteria” and that smoking was to cease in this area. Forthwith we notified Members that the area was to become a No Smoking zone and that the any participation in smoking or vapour was to take place in the area directly outside the deck.
As time has passed we have sought legal and professional advice which conclusively confirms that the deck does not comply with the Open Space Criteria as such.
At our Committee meeting on Tuesday 1st May 2018 your committee with the legal and professional advice they had received along with the importance of protecting  the liquor license moved that the Deck area would continue as a
“No Smoking  Zone ”  forthwith.
We want to thank those members who are smokers for complying with the request that the Deck is Smoke Free and that all Smoking is to take part on the sealed section directly opposite the deck.
If you have any suggestions on an alternative we would appreciate your input in order to move forward.
 Bob Tait
Commodore on behalf of the Committee.
