The Barry Mouat Memorial Wharf to Wharf.
Barry Mouat was a local hero. He was a staunch supporter of Kaitoke School, and of Great Barrier Island and loved to introduce people to the island with all its beauty and quirks.
In 2007 Barry walked the Wharf to Wharf despite having been diagnosed with the cancer that was to take his life. Against medical advice that he ran the risk of breaking his hip he completed the event supported by family and friends.
On the 18th of January 2009 Barry lost his battle against cancer.
This event is dedicated to his memory.
Family man, outdoors man, inspiration.
