Narrow Neck Beach is a public reserve and waterway. As the main sailing season is during the warmer months you can expect to see swimmers, kayaks, paddleboards - things that may be slower than you.
Please note the speed of all vessels (ie dinghies, windsurfers & patrol boats) must be no more than 5 knots when the vessel is:
- Within 50m of any person in the water
- Within 200m of the shore, any structure or vessel flying a dive flag
- Within 50m of any other vessel - except when you are involved in a YNZ affiliated sport for training or racing.
