Celebate Seafood at Bay of Many Coves And Remember Anzac Day

Celebate Seafood at Bay of Many Coves And Remember Anzac Day

New Zealanders commemorate Anzac Day in many ways.

On April 25 thousands of Kiwis will attend dawn services, visit memorials, polish granddad’s medals or simply reflect on an important day in New Zealand’s history 98 years ago.

Murray McCaw, co-owner of The Bay of Many Coves resort in the Marlborough Sounds, has engaged dynamic duo, Flashback, to provide music from the war years as part of the Marlborough Sounds Seafood Celebration over ANZAC weekend (April 25-28).

“This appropriately named group will provide the musical flashback to an era when New Zealand learned about itself and its values and became a tried and trusted member of the Commonwealth forces.”

As part of the special seafood celebration, Bay of Many Coves guests will visit the NZ King Salmon farms and the local paua, oyster and mussel farms on board the beautiful Lady Karen and spend a morning fishing in the Sounds on the MV Tory under expert guidance.

“The weekend at our luxury resort will be a unique celebration and commemoration. Our breathtaking natural environment will provide the chance to relax, enjoy, reflect and taste New Zealand bounty at its best,” Murray McCaw says.

“The jewel in the crown will be an eight-course degustation dinner featuring fresh Marlborough Sounds seafood matched with delicious Giesen Wines.”

The Seafood Celebrations is the first of a series of 2013 luxury weekends meticulously planned by the Bay Of Many Coves resort. They include the popular photographic retreat, Opera Lovers Weekend, the Taittinger Winter Jazz Retreat and Villa Maria Music and Wine with zany jazz ensemble Hot Club Sandwich.

Space is strictly limited. For bookings and more information go to www.bayofmanycoves.co.nz and search under “Events”.
