Mana Cruising Club Clubhouse

Useful Information

As a community minded club, the club supports initiatives in our community and cruising grounds. You can read up on the organisations the club directly supports as a sponsor.

One of these is a partnership with DOC to eradicate rats and other such pests from Pickersgill Island.
DOC Announcement

A DOC Community Fund grant of $20,000 is being given to the Mana Cruising Club Friends of Pickersgill Island group for trapping work on Matapara/Pickersgill Island. It will enable the purchase of 55 self-resetting A24 rat traps and supplies for maintaining the traps. The crew from the Porirua-based club will boat to the island in Queen Charlotte Sound twice a year to service the traps.

DOC Sounds Operations Manager Dave Hayes says DOC welcomes the club members' support to make Pickersgill Island rat-free.
