Venues

The Auckland blokart Club is currently based at Ardmore Airport in Takanini, Auckland. When the winds and tides are suitable we love to hit the local beaches around Auckland, or to travel up to 90 Mile Beach for a long weekend. For other venues around New Zealand, check out the New Zealand blokart Association website.

To find us check out our events page. Of course we are weather dependent, so check out the latest Met service forecast and the latest updates on our Facebook / Twitter feeds.

Ardmore Airport

Airfield Road, Ardmore. Access is via the RTEC premises, Corsair Lane off Airfield Rd. This venue offers a tarsealed runway experience. We meet here usually at noon on a Sunday and a Thursday from 5pm during daylight saving hours. Always check the calendar just in case.

Muriwai

Good firm sand, perfect for a SW wind. The club has had more luck there over the last couple of years than Karioithai. Please remember to following the Muriwai Rules

Omaha

Worth the extra 30 minutes drive past Owera for a smoother wider beach perfect for a NE wind.

Karioitahi Beach

A black sand beach, with a decent run down to the Waikato River in a SE wind.


Ninety Mile Beach

A good 4 hour drive north of Auckland rewards with a golden sandy beach, while not 90 miles long is more than long enough for plenty of fun land sailing. The club organises two long weekend trips away up here a year, for a great social weekend staying at Ninety Mile Beach Holiday Park. We haven’t missed any sailing up here due to lack of wind, and if its NE we just head on over to Tokarau Beach.

Tokarau Beach

Only 20 minutes drive from camp at Ninety Mile Beach Holiday Park, Tokarau is great for the NE winds. As the tides are earlier at Tokarau, we have been known to sail Tokarau in the morning and 90 Mile in the afternoon. Current favorite spot is the end of Dick Urlich Road
