2014 SSANZ RNI starts today at 1400hrs

08 Feb 2014

It's RACE DAY! At 1400hrs today the fleet heads off starting Leg 1 of the 2014 SSANZ Two Handed Round North Island Race (or RNI) supported by the NZL Yachting Trust.

The start line is off Devonport Wharf... and the Race Committee has had to undergo a special briefing to enter the "construction zone".

No little pop gun's to start this race! We have called in the Navy for some real weaponary! I wouldn't recommend being over the startline and upsetting them....

Best viewing would be either on a boat (just don't get in the way of the racers please!) or North Head.

Leg 1 finishes in Mangonui... where a world famous "Fish n Chip" store awaits as well as an infamous and "Legendary" yacht club...
