Stolen cars and gear - Auckland

Just a quick note on a situation that has developed over the weekend. It's 4pm Monday and the fourth person has just walked in to report his car and windsurfing gear stolen form Mission Bay and Tamaki sailing Club. All four rigged up, sailed off the beach on Saturday only to come back and find everything gone. Someone has been watching us to be so well planned. Take care. WSP (Windsurfing South Pacific)
