The Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade is back and coming to Wanaka on 7th January by the Kai Whaka Pai Café between 1pm and 4pm. Simply bring your old, damaged or out-of-date lifejackets to the Old4New van and receive a great discount on a brand-new, quality Hutchwilco lifejacket. Over 4,500 lifejackets have been
traded in over the last three years of the campaign, meaning thousands of kiwis are safer out on the water.

Plus, traded-in lifejackets that still meet NZ Standards are shipped to at-risk communities in the Pacific Islands, ensuring local fishermen and recreational water users don’t risk their lives when working for their livelihoods.

Give a Coastguard Membership - the Boatie’s Best Mate as a Christmas present to that special person who loves boating. A Coastguard Membership will help keep your loved one safe on the water. No matter if you break down, get a flat battery, or run out of fuel, Wanaka Coastguard’s rescue vessel, crewed by our trained
volunteers, will turn up and do all they can to get you home in one piece, free of charge. Don’t miss the boat
- join up today! When you join, nominate Wanaka Lakes as your Unit so you ensure we get our share of your membership.

For more information and to register online, please visit or ring 0800 BOATIE (262 843).
