  3. 2017 Richmond Regatta http://richmondyc.org.nz/racing/info/richmond-regatta/ Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th April 2017 2 Days of Windward Leeward Racing This year we’re adding open divisions to the traditional RYC ‘Associations Regatta’ to give a wider range of our boats a chance at windward-leeward racing! In addition to the usual associations, we are supporting any ‘class’ up to 31ft that can field 5 boats with their own start.

Kudos to the winners: Overall Line: Timberwolf Overall Handicap: That Girl A1 Line: Outrageous Fortune A1 1st: Hot Dogger A1 2nd: No Worries A1 3rd: Predator
