Great hospitality at RAYC for the America’s Cup yesterday and today. Really glad we came down and you guys have certainly made us feel very welcome. Great to be part of such a great club! See you Wednesday – if the nerves hold out!

Just wanted to say thank you for all the help with hiring out RAYC for Saturday. All the staff were very accommodating and we did our best to keep things tidy when we left – hope that was all in order for you. Everyone was very impressed with the set up and I am certain it will be on their radar for future events.

I would like to express my gratitude to the Royal Akarana Yacht club for providing our school, Tamaki College with the opportunity to participate in a Surf Ski program.

The program has worked very well. 11 students have been coming to the club twice a week and are getting instructed surf ski training. Daniel the instructor is very good with them.

Our students come from Glen Innes and have limited opportunities to pursue such activities. All the students involved have thoroughly enjoyed their experience and I have noticed that attendance at school on the days we do Kayaking has dramatically improved.

We hope the relationship we now have with the club can be be further fostered to give more our students future opportunities.

I just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for the racing on Sunday for the Winter Series. The longer course was a great choice for all without hangovers….

If these types of races are going to become a trend then I believe the club will have truly turned a corner. Eileen and I are really enjoying the changes that you guys are pushing through. Especially when it comes to the on water fun as demonstrated by Sunday’s race.
