'The winning crew fron C-Quip - 2012 Marine Trades Challenge'    Richard Gladwell    Click Here to view large photo

The Marine Trades Challenge was staged again this year with teams of young apprentices from 15 organisations and three schools participating.

Their task was to build a boat from supplied kit inside three hours, and then then paddle, sail and finally motor their craft around a triangular course.

Two heats were held to pick the finalists. Plus three schools entered a separate event - all three coming from outside the Auckland area.

Here the action from on the water
