Events & Activities

Racing

A number of trophies are contested by racing members in Auckland each season.

In addition to specific racing events a number of special events are held each year as part of the Cruising Programme. These events are informal, often based around cruising to the next beach BBQ!

From November to February a series of gulf races are held.

In January there is a class race from Mahurangi to Auckland as part of the Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta.

A Ladies Race is held as part of the Summer Cruising Programme. The lady must take the helm no later than when the yacht crosses the starting line and remain at the helm until the course is complete.

All members are welcome to participate in any race, especially if they haven’t raced before. The rivalry is friendly and there’s a lot to be learned from watching those more experienced.
