White Island Race

Round White Island Race

RAYC Round White Island Race Two Handed Division

03 Oct 2007

This years AMP Round White Island Ocean Race will no doubt attract more yachts looking for the challenge of something more than just a cruise up the coast.

With the Round North Island Two-Handed scheduled for February 2008, this race is an official qualifier for all those who haven't yet clocked up their miles.

SSANZ is supporting this event with a Trophy for the winner of the Two Handed Division under PHRF

Also new to this years event is the addition of the JOG (Junior Offshore Group) Division and the Corinthian Division, with starts staggered from Thursday night after briefing through to the Premier and Multihull Division starts on Friday night, in hope that all will be finished and tied up to the dock by late Sunday night.

As this is the second time this race has been run for 20 years, it's great for the sailors of this generation to experience a race they hear their elders in the yacht clubs reminessing over as one of the toughest races in New Zealand waters.

Please contact the Royal Akarana Yacht Club Race Office for more information.
