Coolstore Construction Singlehanded Series


You don’t need friends or crew for these 9 races.  You get to battle the elements and sail a range of courses in the Gulf, including long-distance and multi-day weekend events. The series is open to solo sailors of any skill level with extras and no-extras divisions.

Richmond Yacht Club prides itself on being the home of singlehanded sailing.  We continue to partner with Ponsonby Cruising Club, Bucklands Beach Yacht Club and Devonport Yacht Club to offer competitors a range of challenging courses.  At a series level, the Night Race to Mahurangi will offer competitors those more challenging options whilst the Sir Peter Blake Memorial Race will provide the opportunity to race to a destination and to enjoy the company of other competitors at our renowned beach barbecues.

For those looking for a extra challenge, check out the Gulf Triangle Singlehanded Challenge  – 3 Legs, 2 Layovers, One Sailor.
