MUD HOUSE WOMANS REGATTA
This exciting Regatta will take place over the weekend of 19/20 September 2020
Entries are now open for yachts and crew, experienced and not so experienced. In past editions of the regatta we’ve had everyone from World and Olympic champions to absolute beginners. 2020 will see experienced sailors out of Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch, Wellington and Nelson coming to race and to share their skills and experience across the local racing fleet – not to mention enjoy some amazing Mud House wines! With more skippers making their yachts available we have room for many more crew – just ask if you don’t have a crew to join yet.
You don’t need to be attached to a specific boat, we will match you with one of our yachts to enjoy a weekend full of sailing, fun and a bit of adventure!
Friday will see our crews and skippers enjoying a cruise across Queen Charlotte Sound to Blackwood Bay where they will experience a bit of local flavour with Mud House wine tasting accompanied by some local treats.
Saturday will see the fleet take part in two scheduled long harbour races followed by Saturday evening’s dinner featuring a guest speaker. You’ll need to be quick to nook for the dinner, it sold out last year. Sunday’s programme features two short course races followed by prizegiving.
Participation is what it’s all about and we’d love to see you here!

"Making everything seamless and hassle free that is an art"
After going through the selling process for our Beneteau Oceanis 40, I found that the service and guidance that was provided by Steve Raea in Auckland as brilliant!!.
Any questions I asked, he had the answer plus a possible suggestion to go with it. It did not matter to him even if it was on his days off or when overseas.
Steve has a sound relationship with marine services such as surveyors and alike. To this I would like to say thank you Steve for making the process seamless and hassle free. Steve is continuing to help us in our search for our next vessel. J
My wife and I would recommend anyone looking to sell or purchase a boat to use Vining Marine.
Tony and Virginia.
Thank you so much for all your help & assistance with our purchase of "Jayne", the many taxi rides, honest advice and professional approach to our new home were very much appreciated. You are fantastic to work with and made the whole experience enjoyable and relaxed.
Cheers, Jessica & Chris (Follows the purchase of a Roberts 44 Offshore Yacht - reference on file)
I cannot thank you enough for the efforts you made to secure our ideal yacht.
After 50 years of sailing in and owning a variety of vessels, I know what I want, and the brief I gave you was detailed and demanding, indeed another broker told me a while ago that “The boat you are looking for does not exist”.
When you produced our dream boat we were amazed, and the way you helped us through the entire purchase with patience, integrity, and good humour, went far beyond what was expected.
I will definitely use your services again, and recommend you highly.
Gavin Stevens and Brett Cammell,
We want to send you both our heartfelt thanks for the amazing support you gave us during our time in Waikawa and the Sounds.
You both went way beyond just doing your job which you also do with great integrity. The extra care and time you extended to us will not be forgotten.
Thanks so much!
Rolf and Jackie
Mark, from when you brought Phil, the purchaser of Aqua Vitae over to Tarakohe for the first visit and until the final day they sailed, I can say you are a pleasure to deal with . I like your calm approach to all things.
Phil got a great boat and the way you put things was open and honest , which I like . No BS is certainly the best way to sell .
It was your hard work that got the boat sold .
I think you went above what most brokers I know would do and it was a pleasure to have you aboard to come from Tarakohe back to Nelson .
So all up a big thank-you and you can be sure, if we buy again, we will be coming to you. I will also personally recommend you to some friends, one of my skipper may already have been in touch .
All the best
Andy and Jan Smith
Hello to Pip and team at Vinings.
Thanks to all for your assistance, Pip does a great job, very sincere to deal with!
Thanks and regards,
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Steve. It has been an eventful journey but think we both enjoyed it. My thanks to Steve for his professionalism and good humour.
Good afternoon Brett,
We have just received the proceeds of the sale of vessel, and we would like to thank you very much for your great service, and attention during the sale process.
I would have no hesitation in recommending yourself and Vining Marine to anyone contemplating buying or selling a boat.
Thanks and Regards
Bruce and Julie Reid
