Cruising Series

We’re going back to basics with the 2016-17 RYC Cruising Series. Competitive and/or fun, your choice, better courses, better parties! You don’t need to be RYC member to join in this year, we are encouraging new boats and friendly yachts to come along as well. Come join us! (EF | NOR)


RYC Cruising Race 6 –NOW WAIHEKE RACE!
Friday 14th April 2017 – 1100 hours start 
Entry Form  | Notice of Race

Due to the unpredictable weather, we have decided not to send people into the 2m+ NE swell so we have changed our course to a race to Orapiu, with a BBQ at Opopo Bay (just north of Man ‘O’ War Bay).  We will be using COURSE 1 (Waiheke Course, page 58 of the Handbook.)  New start time will be 1100 hrs. Start at Westhaven Tower.

Meet on or about, Opopo Beach at approx 4pm for the BBQ.  Sausages and BBQ facilities will be provided by Richmond Yacht Club.  See map below.

What’s that? I can win a 2HP outboard?

Yes! As a bonus thanks to Coolstore Construction we’re giving away a new Yamaha 2HP outboard, to make one lucky cruiser’s trip to shore a bit easier.  

To win, join in – we’ll have a random draw at the last prizegiving of the season (15 April) and you get one entry per boat for every Cruising Series race you start in and one entry per boat for showing up to the prizegiving / party (for racers and cruisers!).
