Update: Due to popular demand – Non-Spinnaker Race Series
Due to a clash of dates with the Love Opua annual potluck dinner and AGM the new, trial, Monday night races has become a 3 race series starting on March 13th at 6pm.
‘Three Monday Twilight Races also known as the “NOVICE Race Series” are to be sailed on 13th, 20th & 27th March.
Yes, Monday Evening Twilight Races are being trialled for the purpose of encouraging both current yacht club sailors and potential new members to either race their own boats or crew on boats which regularly sail more competitively. If successful, these races will be included in the Race programme for next season.
These Races are intended to be “super friendly” and help introduce/encourage new racers and/or limited confidence sailors to participate. They will be sailed with main and jib sails only (no spinnakers or gennakers).
Start time for all boats is 6:00pm.
No entry fee is payable for these Races as the intent is to encourage new non-racing participants with limited crew or experience. This is an excellent opportunity for couples or families with young children to get a fun/non-serious racing experience’
The Club Bar will be open from 4.30pm each Monday for this series.
