Singlehanded Series


Richmond Yacht Club Presents the Coolstore Construction Singlehanded Series.

You don’t need friends or crew for these 11 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.

If you are a newbie and just want to have a taste of what Singlehanded sailing is all about – partake in a Singlehanded Race; there are 2 to choose from.  If you need to 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.

To keep things interesting we are bringing a new offering to the table for 2021 – the Gulf Triangle Single Handed Challenge  – 3 Legs, 3 Layovers, 3 Days – One Sailor.  New Zealand’s longest solo sailing race of 2021.
