The boatyard at Whangamata Marina was named Boatyard of the Year and also received the Best Environmental Performance Award. Its wastewater treatment system, a significant investment for a small, privately-owned operation, is a demonstration of the operation’s long-term environmental commitment, as is its participation in the Clean Marinas programme. Gisborne Inner Harbour Marina was also commended by judges in this category. Westhaven Marina took the Outstanding Initiative Award for its ‘Load ‘n’ Go’ berth, a berth for commercial operators, and the Nylonut system, developed by Darcy Blackmore, was also acknowledged in this category as a deceptively simple innovation that has the potential to benefit the wider marina industry. The 2020 Outstanding Individual Contribution Award was presented to Kevin Lidgard. Lidgard is currently general manager of marinas at Panuku Development Auckland. He is a long standing member of the marina and boatyard industry who collaborates for the good of the industry, shares knowledge and contributes extensively. – November/December 2020 13
