Harken New Zealand's new Fosters Chandlery is the first store to open in the brand new and highly-anticipated Westhaven Marine Village and, to mark the occasion, are hosting a grand opening on Saturday.
Fosters have been a stalwart of marine supplies in New Zealand since 1907, and their grand opening celebration is aptly timed to showcase the sport’s innovation as the summer of yachting commences on the Hauraki Gulf.
The public are invited to join yachting commentators and America’s Cup experts at the store with the accomplished Harken New Zealand team from 2.30pm on Saturday for the official opening followed by an insightful Q&A session.
You'll then be able to tune into the live Christmas Cup yachting on the big screens from 3pm, when a complimentary drink and finger food will be served.
The new store will be open with coffee available on site from 9am and, for those keen to test their yachting strength, the Harken grinding challenge will run all day.
The shop is already open and Harken are proud to feature the best and latest in boating hardware, yachting accessories and marine technical apparel for a special four-day event around the grand opening.
As an official supplier of Emirates Team New Zealand, the public are invited to the new Fosters Chandlery to watch the live racing on their big screens at 3pm daily (Dec 17-20) in the company of past America’s Cup sailors and many of New Zealand's top-ranked sailors.
