A considerable number of our Marine Brokers have given freely of their time to the various Boating Clubs in Marlborough and Nelson, we have held Commodore and Flag Officer roles and generally enjoyed putting something back into the sport we love. At least three of our team (Ian, Mike and Rob) compete in yacht racing on a weekly basis during the season and we have been lucky enough to win the odd series here and there.
