Coastal Medic Course Running This Weekend

 medicWellington Ocean Sports will be running it's only Coastguard Coastal Medic Course for the year this weekend.  As well as its marine applications, this course exceeds the Health and Safety requirements of “two day workplace first aid”, so has many commercial usages. 

Friday Night Fun in Wardroom!


 This Friday night in the Wardroom...

Its not an official 'Wellington on a plate burger', but they are the best burgers in town ;) , and we are serving them up for a sweet juicy $12.00. So come down this Friday night to try a Royal Port Nic Beef burger, served with with cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, tomato and lettuce served in sesame seed soft fresh bun, with shoestring fries accompanying this divine beef burger goodness, its the perfect way to begin a weekend of indulging, sure to help you through those Beervana session this weekend.  

...and on the note of beer, we still have a some of the remarkable 'golden brew' Riwaka secret still available on tap, so come down before this goodie goes. Not to mention though that we are now hosting The Hop Hustlers IPA, made with a mix of exotic hops, this beer is distinctively unique from typical IPA's, perfect for those in favor of a strong bitter and dry finishing beer. 

See you all this Friday!

Cheers Laura
