Kapiti Expedition

The Fishing Committee is organising a day’s fishing trip for club members’ boats to Kapiti Island, leaving from the ramp at MMBC. The proposed dates are 18th September (High Tide 7.40am) and save day 2nd October (High T. 7.06am)

If the weather and conditions look suitable a decision will be made the night before and contact made via phone and email. The boats will line up in the carpark by the cones, skippers will gather in the carpark for a quick briefing at 8.30am and the flotilla will leave shortly after and return around 4pm. Cancellations will also be notified by VHF channel 60, MMBC Facebook and the noticeboard around the MMBC entrance.

The flotilla will be escorted by Manawatu Coastguard traveling down the coast (approximately 1 hour cruising) to fish around the northern end of Kapiti Island for blue cod and groper. You must register your interest giving skipper’s name, boat name, size of boat, phone number, email, likely number of crew via the following email: Fishing Coordinator:   fishing@mmbc.org.nz

You must have enough fuel capacity to easily make a 3 hour trip if needed (120 litres)

NB: There is no charge for this event, it is just an adventure opportunity for MMBC boats to fish further afield, in the security of a small flotilla.

Thanks Fishing Committee.
