Help us future proof our special place

Donate to the Wakatere deck project

The Wakatere deck is that special place where everyone meets, laughs, and enjoys good times. 

Now our special place needs some TLC.  
The deck needs to be rebuilt for safety, updated and extended to provide additional boat storage and rainwater tanks underneath. 

The project will cost $250,000 which will be mostly funded from cash reserves from the club. We need your help to raise a final $60,000 towards that figure.

Your support will make a huge difference.
We are asking every club family and friend of Wakatere to support the donation campaign. Whatever you can afford will be appreciated and of course those large donations will be a massive help.

Keep the good times and great adventures rolling into the future.  

The place where we meet new people, bump into friends, and watch the sailing 

The place where we share a yarn with mates, celebrate, fly the flag, enjoy the view 

If you want to do it all again, for years to come - you can!
