2018 Rotoiti Classic 10  November

 

For this years Rotoit Classic the courses have been selected to allow for more corners and tactical decisions with some different landmarks chosen to send the fleet around. We are offering short, medium and long haul formats and naturally allowing for some after race socialising. 

The 'Classic' course will come in three lengths, Short, Medium and Longhaul.

The small boat course is designed to allow smaller boats to compete and have a cruising feel to it.

They will do one lap of the lake. The medium caters for the mid size trailer yachts and will be based on two laps of the lake.

Larger trailer yachts, other approved yachts and trailer tri's will go further (afield) completing three laps of the lake to really test the endurance of the competitors.

 

Entry open to Trailer Yachts, trailer tri’s and other approved yachts.

 

A Division NZTYA 0.860> 3 Laps Lake Rotoiti (about 50 miles)

B Division NZTYA 0.859< 2 Laps Lake Rotoiti (about 34 miles)

C Division Open to all trailer yachts 1 Lap Lake Rotoiti (about 17 miles)

Looking forward to this race, last year was a blast (literally) shortened course due to a pretty decent amount of wind. Heaps of boats and social around the bbq after.

The question is, which boat. I could opt for the Cherry 16 and try for a lap, or the Strike 18, and do 3.

*sigh* it's a hard life
