The Mercury Bay Boating Club in Whitianga is this season’s host for the Waikato Regional Centreboard Championship Regatta, which will take place on the weekend of 15 - 16 February 2020.
Mercury Bay is situated on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula. With Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach to the South and Opito and Otama Bays to the north, Whitianga is at the epicentre for the best the Coromandel has to offer. Our ocean racecourse has an amphitheatre-like quality to it. Rocky islands and dramatic stone arches lie just offshore while sheer cliffs and both white and black sand beaches ring the perimeter. Orca and dolphin are frequent visitors to the bay, as are Kingfish, Kahawai, and Snapper.
The town of Whitianga has numerous attractions for both young and old including great fishing, diving, and hiking. The Lost Spring Geothermal Spa is located here for hot water soaks and beauty treatments. Restaurants, cafés and galleries are plentiful as are supermarkets, hardware stores and chandleries. Accommodation for all budgets is available in town, on the outskirts and of course at our sister villages of Kuaotunu, Wharekaho, Cook’s Beach and Flaxmill Bay. Whitianga is a family friendly thermal ocean village with a recent town centre upgrade, a brand new playground, and marvelous beaches, estuaries and creeks.
