More than 50 people, among them several Mercury Bay-based commercial fishermen and their families, gathered on Saturday evening last week at the Mercury Bay Bowling Club in Whitianga to farewell the Moana New Zealand fish factory in Whitianga.

It was on Sunday, 17 November announced that a Mercury Bay Golf & Country Club 18-hole ladies golf team took out the 2019 Women’s National Club Teams’ Championship. The announcement was made at the Hauraki Golf Course in Mangatarata, after which the team members - Robyn Anderson, Chris Watson, Barbara Bradley and Joan Roseman - were each presented with a medal and the “Women’s National Club Teams’ Championship” Trophy.

Whitianga residents, Malcolm and Pauline Brown, have owned their 36ft yacht, Chantal, for more than 34 years, but it wasn’t until recently that they’ve actually laid eyes on one of the prestigious trophies that was part of the boat’s rich past history and ocean racing successes.
