Gather your crew, we have another night of Great Advice:  Monday 19th October, 7pm at RNZYS, PredictWind will present the forecast for the race. 

After digesting the most up to date weather expectations four days out, one of the most illustrious inshore and offshore sailors of our time, Doyle Sails CEO Mike Sanderson, will give his judgement on what could be the winning strategy and what tactics the different types of boats may want to consider for the race from Auckland to Russell. The Race Director will also give more information on the course and safety preparations. 

This is always a busy event, so RSVP now, arrive early and bring your notebook! 

We are still accepting LATE ENTRIES for this years' race, and all entries not paid before Thursday 15th October will incur the late fee. Unfortunately, Cat 3 inspections are not able to be booked this close to the race. 

SKIPPERS: Please ensure that you have updated Top Yacht with your PHRF, Cat 3, and all crew members with emergency contact details.
