Trustees & Management

The Akarana Trust is administered by a management team and volunteer trustees from a diverse range of backgrounds, with one thing in common — they’re all passionate about helping Kiwis navigate a safe pathway to the sea.

Sailing is in Howard’s blood — in fact, he has raced every summer on his various M Class yachts since ’93. He is passionate about youth development and ensuring the marine hub is kept as an inclusive access point for all of Auckland to the ‘most beautiful harbour in the world’.
