Manawatu Club House Photos
The Manawatu Power Boat Club Inc was formed in 1962. Prior to this they were part of the Manawatu Boating Club which was a Yacht and Power Boat Club.
This was originally set up when the Foxton Boating & Fishing Clubs were joined. The two Clubs split about 35 years ago into the two Clubs they are now. Most Speedboat Clubs race on lakes and Estuaries while we run on the Manawatu River.
The Gold Cup was set up to compliment the long established Masport Cup and Pelorus Jack Cup. The Gold Cup has quickly become the most prestige’s river race, bar none.
If you won a Gold Cup you certainly had a class boat and were immediately put among the elite drivers.
