Excel Refrigeration Gulf Triangle Singlehanded Challenge


3 Legs, 2 Layovers – One Sailor
New Zealand’s Longest Solo Sailing Race of 2022

Friday 4th – Sunday 6th March 2022.

This long distance, weekend race will capitalise on the club’s current Route 66 as leg 1, Auckland to Whangarei.  After a compulsory stopover at Marsden Cove, the fleet will restart for the leg across to Port Abecrombie on the Great Barrier, and after a further compulsory stopover, race the third leg back to Auckland.  This event will suit those looking for adventure and challenge and the experience of racing longer distances solo.

Having enjoyed the Route 66, our patrol boat will accompany you to Great Barrier and provide dinner and breakfast, before sending you homeward bound to Westhaven.

There will be a briefing at RYC at 1830 hours on Tuesday 1 March 2022 .
