Club staff and officers

Ponsonby Cruising Club is run by a mixture of enthusiastic volunteers and even more enthusiastic staff. Any of them would be delighted to take your questions through the contact page, or by turning up at the door.

Everyone is welcome, and you’re bound to bump into one of these people either in the office, or upstairs at the bar!
