Respect our local boating conditionsGet in touch with us if you are planning to hold an event on or in the water- a swimming event or race, sailing, kayaking, jet ski or other boating race.

Send us information about your event in:

We will:

  • Check your event does not clash with another major activity on the water
  • Provide advice on other safety precautions, such as checking the weather, good communications and monitoring shipping movements during the event.
  • Check you have made adequate safety provisions for your event, and decide if you need dispensation from any Navigation and Safety Bylaws, e.g. uplifting of speed restrictions to hold a speed boat regatta, or an exemption to participants wearing lifejackets for an event

If you need any advice for planning your event contact us on 04 830 4160.
