Keelers of all shapes and sizes, sports boats, multihulls, flying fifteens, and the passage divisions for cruising boats, will congregate at Bay of Islands Sailing Week in January 2010.
Simon Hull’s new super speed sailing machine, the Open 60 Team G3 is ready to rocket across the Bay; Jim Farmer’s new Georgia IRC 52 has done the HSBC Premier Coastal Classic and now is a ‘known quantity’ is racing for victory. And the Aussie 63 foot Reichel Puch Limit , wants and needs to make a conquest - so watch out New Zealand.
This is an exciting week for competitors and volunteers. Fun, laughter, screaming, cheering, eating, drinking. Bay of Islands Sailing Week just gets better and better. Not to forget the Beach Party on Roberton Island at end of racing on Race Day #2. Skippers can enter on-line at the terrific race website, which also is a great place to find crew or to advertise yourself if you are looking for a crew spot.
