As part of our annual prizegiving, Wakatere awards a number of Prestige Prizes which are nominated by club members. Nominations are then put to a guest panel for review and final selection.
We have awards for sailing performance, sportsmanship, and for being helpful - we try to cover everything at Wakatere.
