Whether you 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 aggressive 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 in the series, you need to be a member of the club.
