Opua Cruising club will be hosting the inaugural Pacific Cruisers Cup on Friday 18th November and all international cruising yachts in the Bay of Islands are invited to enter.

This fun race will be held in conjunction with Opua Cruising Club’s regular North Sails Friday evening Rum Race. As a pursuit race, slower designs are allocated earlier individual start times and faster designs have later start times. Racing starts from 17.30hrs.

A relaxed two-sail (no spinnakers, gennaker, code zero) format means minimum hassle and maximum fun!!
We race from the start line in front of the club around a simple two-mark course and then back home.

Prizegiving at the club after racing. Prizes include a perpetual trophy with the winning boat’s name inscribed on it for posterity.

$10 Entry Fee – Entry forms are available at the club.
Sailing instructions will be emailed once entry has been received.

If you have any questions please contact our Race Officer – Paul (Buddha) Smith nzyachtservices@icloud.com
