SUP fun

The purpose of the Volvo Sailing and Boating Week is to get members of the public out on the water, and this was achieved in “big numbers” at  Wellington Ocean Sports on Saturday, said Manger Matt Wood. “Not only did 162 Wellingtonians get to experience ocean sports on our beautiful harbour, but several follow on courses were sold on Saturday that will lead onto regular participation. The day would not have been possible without the support of Armstrong Prestige and we look forward to working with them in the future”
