Lots of Sunshine here! 'Climate' is what you expect.
'Weather' is what you get.
Both are good in New Zealand!

We enjoy around 275 days of excellent VFR conditions every year. Visibility is amongst the clearest in the world.

Here's a shot of Gulf Harbour Marina taken on 3rd Jan 2001. Some of the Americas Cup Yachts berth here, some of the crew lodge here. The Marina lies on Auckland's North Shore.

It's about ten minutes flying time from the Aerodrome.

Another shot of Gulf Harbour Marina. A lot of serious development is going on in the North Shore area, and there's plenty of room to do it. A new motorway (soon to be extended) connects downtown Auckland to Orewa, close to the Aerodrome.
There are many little bays with clean, safe and uncrowded beaches. In January the water is beginning to warm up. It's safe to swim here. Sharks are very rare visitors! The fishing is good too.
