coastal classic 7 2.jpegAfter the success of the walking weekend, the focus turns back to the water next weekend for the annual Coastal Classic Yacht Race.  The race from Auckland to the Bay of Islands has been a popular Labour weekend event since its inception in 1982.  It’s always great to see Russell’s harbour a picture of boats and the skippers and sailors who have crossed the finish line. To all entrants – have a fabulous race and we look forward to seeing you in Russell!

This year, a heads-up to the land-based support crew of family and friends is to pack your mountain bikes.

Sunday marked the opening of the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park (pic above).  What a momentous achievement for Tiffany and Robin Holland who have given their all to this project. The facility looks amazing.  It is evident that the generosity, hard work and united vision of everyone involved has delivered an outstanding result.
The mountain bike park is on track to be a leading attraction in the Bay of Islands.  It will provide a healthily activity for everyone to enjoy and significant benefits to the region. Find out all about it and become an ambassador now at Waitangi Mountain Bike Park.

If you are planning a visit to the Bay of Island next weekend, I would recommend booking accommodation and restaurants to meet your travel plans.  If you like the sound of music in the vines, don’t miss the Cellar Door Session at Kanui Road Vineyard on Saturday.

If you are interested in property, make an appointment now.  The property market is very active.  Call me on 0212 444 888.  I look forward to showing you a selection of the finest property offered for sale in the Bay of Islands.
