The experience that is available at the Kerikeri Cruising club is just fabulous for lovers of all things on the water. The club provides a great experience that is helped by the attentive staff members and the location is just awesome as it’s right at doorstep of the Bay of Islands. You know that feeling when you are in a perfect throwback to a classic movie, that nostalgic calmness is what I felt when I went boating there recently in the area.
About Kerikeri Cruising Club
There is a bit of rich history behind the club. It was founded in 1935 but fell short of its dreams because of the Second World War. The club president informed that the club was resurrected in the early 50s after it wound down in 1939. The first clubhouse was built in 1959, it had just a boat shelter. Today, the clubhouse is located in Dove’s Bay in downtown Kerikeri. It has a large marina that serves the boating purposes of its members and guests.
There are elected officials who oversee the running of the club’s affairs in a professional manner. The topmost official of the club is the Commodore, followed by the Vice Commodore. Other officials include the Rear Commodore, Treasurer, and Secretary. There are also several committees that oversee some aspects of the club. In order to become a member of the Kerikeri Cruising Club and Marina, you simply have to register at the clubhouse.
