Cruising Series


If round the cans racing is not for you – come join us and enjoy the cruising series.

There is friendly competition – BBQs on the beach – lots of awesome prizes and some great people to meet and drink rum with.

If you already have a Sail Pass then your cruising series entry is included.

You can do it single handed or use our Crew Finder to get yourself some new crew

All course information is available from the NOR (Notice of Race) however weather friendly course details will be posted here a couple of days before each race along with probable beach venue.

Cruising Race 1 – Shortened Course
Friday 15th November 2019
Cruising season is here!  Finally, we have dragged out the shorts and tee shirts.  This Friday, 15 November sees the start of the RYC Cruising Series.  The plan at this stage is to use Course 9, with the option of shortening at Illiomama Buoy if the wind doesn’t hold out.  This leaves Saturday free to explore the local islands, have a fish or just relax and Home Bay, Motutapu will be good for the Saturday evening barbecue. Confirmation of the BBQ location by calling Taipan on 0274 977 565 or monitor VHF the appropriate channel.

Each race we will be giving away a rod & reel combo, sponsored by Coolstore Construction and Burnsco.  How about letting us know on the Cruising Event Facebook Page/ if you are planning to come along so we know who to look out for?

RYC will provide BBQ’s & gear, rum & coke. BYO food and don’t forget to fly your RYC burgee.
