Victoria Friday Night Special Crew
The first race of our Victoria Friday Night Special starts on Friday 16th October. Many of our generous skippers volunteer their boats to take out novice crew that are keen to learn. There are 8 races over the season where we try to allocate you to a different boat each race to give you a taste of different boats and styles. This year, we will also be running a ‘Prep’ session at the club, the week before to give new comers an idea of what to expect. For example: what you need to bring, what is expected of you, how to get into the marina, what to wear etc. Keen participants can let skippers know if they would like to race as regular crew on Wednesday nights. More info
To join, you must be a crew member of the club and then pay a further entry fee of $100, making a total of $215. Friday-Special-Crew-Entry-Form-2015-2016
Victoria Friday Night Special Skippers
This is an ideal opportunity to look out for new crew for your team and to give something back to Auckland yachting. It can also be a lot of fun. If you are new to racing and want to ‘have a go’ at some easy ‘No Extras’ Harbour Races, this is the ideal race for you.
If you are keen on taking out crew, then there is no charge for these races, otherwise there is a small cost of $25 per race. We cant run this program without you so please think about signing up and joining us. Entry form Here.
