Whether you are are Crew looking for a way to get on the water and learn some new skills or a Boat Owner looking for a gentle introduction to racing on the Waitemata Harbour the Friday Night Special is for you. Come and join us during the summer for our Friday Night Fun Races.
Crews: The series provides an opportunity for people that have little or no sailing experience to race on keel boats around the buoys in the beautiful Waitemata Harbour in a supportive, low-key environment. Experienced sailors that wish to get more sailing in or wish to try out a number of new boats are also encouraged to join. Each race you are allocated to a different boat, which can range in size from 26ft to 44ft.
Skippers: The series provides a chance to experience racing your boat on the Harbour in a less agressive environment. Use it as a lead up to tackling the big fleets of the Wednesday Night Series. We can help you out with crew when you are ready.
After each race there is a social evening for participants in the RYC clubrooms with the bar open and a meal available. The series is great for networking – we encourage crew members to let skippers know if they are available to crew for races outside of the Friday Night Special series. To participate, you need to be a member of our club.
