Mon 31 Jan: Ports of Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta Classic Launch Race
The CYA encourages members to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we can all get back on the water. The latest guidance can be found on the New Zealand COVID-19 website at https://www.covid19.govt.nz
2021 - 2022 CYA SUMMER of SAILING & BOATING
Keelboat Series: entries are open for the remainder of the season and due to all the uncertainty to date, we can understand skippers being reluctant to pay ahead for events. However, now the new traffic light system is on place, our season should look more definite.
And you can always enter the Series and pay as you go!! Be good to get your entries in asap.
The annual Launch Parade will take place at Mahurangi. Meet at 10.30 hrs on Saturday 29 January at Scotts Landing. There will not be a beach commentary in 2022 (no on-shore events) but the Parade will still take place.
Log Rally: Details will follow in January

VESSEL REGISTER & MEMBERSHIP
The 2022 Vessel Register has now been posted to all current members.
If you are among the few who have yet to pay your subs for 2021-22, we will look forward to receiving them and a copy of the register will be on its way to you. Reluctantly we have had to advise any unpaid subs by 20 January will result in members being removed from the database – we don’t want to do this so look forward to hearing from you.
DESPERATE PLEA FROM A MULLET BOAT
TAIHOA IS looking for a caring owner who could get her back into a Lipton Cup challenge state! She is structurally sound and was still sailing two years ago.
PEST PROOFING YOUR BOAT BEFORE HEADING BACK INTO THE WATER
Please pest proof your boat before you return to the water
Thinking about getting back out on the water? Don’t forget to check for pests that might have got on board during lockdown. Rats and mice could be in your food cupboard, or nibbling at your motor wiring, as well as those marine pests that may have attached to your hull as it has sat in the marina or on your mooring. As Aucklanders and boaties, it is our responsibility to help prevent the spread of pests and support the work that is being done to keep our harbours, islands and special areas pest free.
The organisers of the annual Lake Rotoiti parade warmly invite CYA members to attend their 25th celebration parade in 2022.
They are keen to help keep our members' costs down, so alongside a very low token entry fee and discounted optional buffet dinner on the Friday night, they have arranged a discounted rate at the Lakeside 4 star hotel (which has its own marina). This will be on a first come, first served basis, as there is a limited amount of trailer parking and jetty spaces.
For members who might want to join us, if they simply register an interest in coming by phone or email in the next few weeks, we can give them more detailed information and in due course an entry form for the parade day.
