Club Marine Winter Series underway at Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron
Growing fleets are battling it out on New Zealand’s Auckland Harbour in the Club Marine Winter Series at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS), currently eight races into the 10-race series.
The fleet has grown throughout the series and peaked at 105 entries, despite a gap due to the absence of a number of big boats competing in the recent Auckland to Fiji Yacht Race. Growing fleet numbers also mean fiercer competition, says the RNZYS, with several divisions in the 10-division competition regularly counting over 20 competitors on race days.
An exciting new addition to the series is a number of foiling multihulls in the Open Multihull Division. Eight to nine foiling multihulls battle it out in windward/leeward conditions every second Saturday in a competition that threatens to take the attention and glory away from the monohulls in Division A.
Meanwhile, anticipation is building in Division A for the arrival of another TP52 in the next few months to bolster the already sizable TP52 fleet.
The introduction of the Club Marine Winter Series Happy Hour following racing means the post-race analysis in the squadron’s Dinghy Locker bar has become even more colourful and predictions even wilder as to who is going to take series honours.
