If you are planning to have a crack at the race this year, get your entry in now, and you could be the lucky one that wins your entry fee back. All entries received before 10th August 2020 will go in the random prize draw.

Entries from all divisions are eligible to win, whether racing or in the cruising rally. If you've already submitted your entry online, you're automatically in the draw.  View T&C and more info.

Signing up early helps us plan for your race better, so that you can have the best possible experience on the Great Race North and when you get ashore in Russell.

What are you waiting for? 
If you don't yet have your crew confirmed, your Cat three minus  safety certificate or PHRF renewed, you can update your entry in due course.

But please, don't leave any of those very important tasks until the last minute or you'll be out of luck!

Amendment #1 to the 2020 Notice of Race was published on 10th July - regarding clause 7.3 and the "classics" division. 

If your boat fits the description of a "Modern Classic", you'll want to pay particular attention to this one!
Frequently Asked Questions

What Safety Requirements are there? What does Cat 3 Minus mean? The PIC Coastal Classic is defined by Yachting NZ as a Category 3 minus event. This means that every boat needs to get a Cat 3 (minus life raft or dinghy) Safety Certificate issued by Yachting NZ and must show that you meet all the requirements of the Category 3 via an inspection (except you do not need a life raft or dinghy). To book an inspection, find an inspector here, on the Yachting NZ Website.

Which division do I enter? If you already have a PHRF certificate, you can cross-reference the divisional split in the Notice of Race – and be sure to check that you’re in the right category for your length overall (LOA). We may from time to time need to alter the division’s PHRF or LOA splits to ensure balanced divisions. The final entry list by division is published the week leading up to race start.

How can I get help preparing? How can I learn tips and tricks? Every year we run two pre-race events to give you some time with our network of experts, learn something new, and ask questions. The two events this year are scheduled for Monday 14th September 7pm RNZYS and Monday 19 October 7pm RNZYS. Stay tuned to our facebook page and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest information. Also, check out our Instagram @piccoastalclassic where we’ll be sharing a series of tips and tricks in the lead up to the race!
