Richmond Yacht Club's Single Handed Racing Series

Recommended Posts

Richmond Yacht Club presents; The Vining’s Single Handed Series.


If you’re interested in the ultimate sailing challenge then enter this years Vining’s Single Handed Series, hosted by Richmond Yacht Club. Entries  are now open. The first two races, hosted by the Ponsonby Cruising club are only a month away. Time to get the boat transitioned to SH mode. Once again we are fortunate to have Vinings, Mariner and Kiwi Yachting as series sponsors, Ponsonby Cruising Club, Bucklands Beach Yacht Club and Devonport Yacht Club partnering with Richmond, to cover the ten race programme, and new shirts. Some of us are getting quite a collection.This does allow for drops. When organising the courses we have tried to reflect competitor interest in a full mix of short and long courses and will still run an extras and non-extras divisions. Once again the Route 66 and the night race to Mahurangi, both Richmond organised races, will provide that added challenge.


The opening weekend’s first race will take us on a longer Gulf course finishing of the Gulf Harbour Marina. Gulf Harbour Yacht Club will be the host club for that evening. The race home on the Sunday will finish at the Westhaven tower. I will send the sailing instructions by email as soon as Grant has finalised the courses. Remember where Piripiri is? Just a clue.

Would be helpful if you could get your entries completed sooner rather than later so we can size the shirts.
