Coolstore Construction Singlehanded Series

Richmond Yacht Club Presents the Coolstore Construction Singlehanded Series.

You don’t need friends or crew for these 11 (now 7) 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.  Chat with fellow Singlehanded racers join our Facebook Group.

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 and Route 66 will offer competitors those more challenging options whilst the Peter Blake Memorial Race and the Bucklands Beach events 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, 3 Layovers, 3 Days – One Sailor.  New Zealand’s longest solo sailing race of 2022.

Change of Cost for Series (7 races, 4 to count)
Given the shortened calendar we are also offering a reduction in costs to those who entered for the season.
The series has now been reduced to 6 races,  plus the  Route 66.
The revised cost will be $110 plus Route 66 or $90 with an RYC Sail Pass
The Single Handed Series Notice of Race has been amended to reflect these changes and only 4 races are required to compete for a series result.

Prizegiving will be held on Sunday 10th April at 1730 hrs at the RYC Club Rooms.
