Tasman Bay Cruising Club

Following a very successful Tech Tuesday on 7th July we invite you to listen and learn from another of our valued Sponsors and introduce Andrew Hogg - our Nelson Harbourmaster.
Come along next Tuesday – 14th July. The bar is open from 17:30. Discussions begin at 18:30. Sorry no meals available.

Wayne Judge from Altex Coatings, with Marcus Gardiner assisting, will be introducing Sea Zone 60, Number 5 Antifouling and a Copper Free Vivid Antifouling product, plus surface preparation on multiple substrates.

Wayne will be distributing Top of the South Bio Security brochures too. Top of the South’s vision “Is a marine environment where the top of the South Island is protected from damaging marine pests and diseases.”


Andrew Hogg: Diver Sailor Cyclist Harbourmaster at Port Nelson
“I have owned boats off and on, my favourite boat being a ferro 36fter sailing in Auckland, and was crew member of a Whiting ¼ tonner where we raced out of Port Nicholas Yacht Club – even once did the Nelson race. Was in the Navy 14 years driving ships which took me across the globe in a range of humanitarian, patrolling, enforcement and international relations purposes.
I left as a Commander to join Port Nelson for the dual role as Marine Operations Manager and Harbourmaster. “

Speedsters in the harbour? Ships getting in your way? Buoys not marking the channel?

Answers to these and more with Andrew Hogg, Nelson Harbourmaster.
