Herne Bay cruising club boathouse painting

Michelle has been working on a new painting of the cruising club boathouse in Herne Bay. Nestled into the shoreline below Marine Parade Reserve in Herne Bay sits an important part of Auckland’s yachting heritage. The Herne Bay Cruising Club on Sloanes Beach is the former home of the Richmond Yacht Club, one of the oldest and most prominent yacht clubs in Auckland. The boathouse was opened at Sloanes Beach on 8 November 1913. The painting is acrylic on board and 700 x 500mm.

Stanley Bay is a beautiful area - it's right in the heart of Devonport but almost feels like it's own little retreat.
