by Torbay Sailing Club
As of Tuesday 1st of December we have 320 registrations over 15 classes – we are on target to match or surpass previous years and retain this as the largest two day regatta in the country!
This year is going to be very special – as we have Lion NZ as a committee boat – Sir Peter Blake’s 78 foot Whitbread ocean race yacht. She is a tangible link to Sir Peter and why we sail in this regatta to remember a great New Zealander. She will be an impressive sight on the course and chance to get up close and personal to a real NZ icon.
The weather forecast is looking good and we have fantastic sponsors in Toyota NZ, Albany Toyota and the North Shore City Council. If you haven’t done so by now register online at www.TorbaySailingClub.org.nz and get the $10.00 discount. We will close online registrations on Thursday evening. Late entries will be accepted at the club on Friday afternoon and on Saturday morning – but this makes our lives really hard – so get online and be part of largest 2 day regatta in the country.
Sailing Instructions (SI) were emailed to registered sailors last night along with instructions for lunches. They are also available from our web site. See you on the water to remember a great New Zealander.
