We’re thrilled to announce Coastguard Auckland is the Auckland Boat Show’s charity of choice for the next three editions of the show.
With boaties at the heart of each organisation’s ethos and with both calling the City of Sails home, it was an easy choice to join together in partnership.
When the show takes place from 14th-17th March, Coastguard Auckland will be on hand with its Trillian Trust Rescue vessel.
“Everyone who walks past at the Auckland Boat Show will be invited aboard for a tour of our Trillian Trust Rescue vessel,” says Coastguard Auckland general manager, Ségolène de Fontenay.
“We know members of the public like to check her out while connecting with our volunteers dedicated to saving lives at sea. Most boaties see us out there on the water and do not have the opportunity to say hi.”
“Having one of our ‘heavies’ at this event is also a great platform to remind the public that lifejackets are essential safety gear for all water activities #JustWearIt
