HELP US STOP THE SPREAD OF GOLDEN CLAMS!
We are very sad to report that the invasive Golden Clams have been found at different points of the Waikato River, including in Lake Karapiro where we sail.
These clams spread very easily, especially from lake users moving between different fresh water sources, such as when moving boats between lakes.
Our advice is to make sure to clean boats between moving locations, with tap water and bleach to remove any clam material. Sailing gear can be hosed off well and left to dry completely - this will kill any foreign matter.
