Annual Lake Mahinapua Aquatic Club (LMAC) Regatta
January 30 - January 31
Invitation to the annual Lake Mahinapua Aquatic Club (LMAC) Regatta
This is a popular regatta and all who have attended previously report back on what an enjoyable time is had.
Last year we had everything from the doldrums to the backlash of an ex-tropical cyclone.
You will note that the regatta is earlier in the season than previous years.
We hope for better weather and the timing hopefully fits for everyone before schools go back.
We offer great hospitality in a stunning location. Sunshine is normally provided but if you are concerned at the forecast,
please arrange to bring some with you. The racing promises to be enjoyable and we welcome all classes of dinghy and
trailer yachts. If you are in any doubt over your boat’s suitability for the regatta, please get in touch to discuss.
More details about the club are available on our website.
LMAC is situated 2 minutes drive along Shanghai Road, (turning opposite the famous “Mahinapua Hotel”).
We have a great clubhouse with changing, toilet and kitchen facilities. In addition, we have views that belong
on a postcard and on a clear day you can see Mt Cook whilst crossing the start/finish line. Adjacent to the club is the DOC
campsite for those who wish to sleep under canvas / in a caravan or motorhome. For those wanting greater creature
comforts there is good accommodation available in Hokitika to suit a range of budgets.
The Hokitika i-Site staff would be happy to assist you.
For those not sailing, there are some excellent walks starting from the lake, and the world famous West Coast Cycle Trail
is 5 minutes drive away, with the “Tree Top Walkway and Cafe” 10 minutes drive away.
We are a family friendly club and look forward to welcoming you to our regatta.
The regatta is also listed on the Yachting NZ site.
