"There is little better than a day out on the water. Whether it's a gentle sail, a blast up the coast, lines over the side, a dive to explore the bottom, or a get together with mates....

...there is little worse than finding yourself in trouble in that patch of paradise, wishing that you knew more, or that your family or crew could get you and your boat safely back to shore if ever they had to."

Coastguard looks out for the safety of every person who goes to sea off our coast or enjoys any of the region's harbours, or beaches.

Multiple reports of a vessel with 3 or 4 POB broken down (via victim to Police on 111) or overdue (family to CG Ops Centre and friends to CG Mana public phone). Location (estimate) varied between 6NM of coastline between Makara and Little Titahi Bay. Limited comms from victim via 1 cellphone that was down to 20% battery. Information very confused and unreliable. Started with coastline search and trying to identify potential lights. Received TXT indicating we had gone past them and they had drifted further out near Mana Island. Spotted a orange flickering light about 3NM in the distance.

Prepared to move H28, wind gusting 25 to 30 knot NW.  Route to berth varable wind direction, vessel on inide corner of fairway sticks out by a metre making turning with NW hazardous.  Finger on Western side with vessel with prominent anchor protruding outside berth pole line.  Too high a risk to attempt so aborted.  Stopped at 2 x yachts with bad hallard slap and remedied.  Went through two fire drills and an abandon ship.

A large log was reported to be partially submerged, but stuck in the same position, near Plimmerton Boating Club that was a significant boating hazard.

The Harbour Master asked us to attempt to recover it to remove the hazard. We were able to get a line onto it and towed it back to Mana Cruising Club, where we towed it up the launching ramp with the 4x4.
