This is a closed event, open to RNZYS members only, although in 2014-15 Ponsonby Cruising Club, Richmond Yacht Club and Royal Akarana Yacht Club will also be hosting races to these destinations with the idea of having a great interclub challenge!
The Commodores Cup Series starts with Opening Day usually the 1st weekend in October. This is a day for all the family to come and enjoy the clubhouse, not just the sailors. The traditional firing of the cannon at 1100hrs by the Commodore makes sure the season starts off with a bang! There are 6 races in the series. Haystack (Orarapa Island) is the farthest point. Early February is Squadron Weekend with the ever popular Night Race to Kawau Island, the Kawau Island Race followed by the shore party and BBQ at Kawau Island Yacht Club on Saturday night. Early March is Te Kouma and early April is Round Rangitoto, considered by most to be the closing race of the RNZYS Summer season. Please note for 2014-15 there are some new opportunities for the Commodores Cup Series and we want your input so come to the Boat Owners Meeting 12th June at 1800hrs in the Commodores Room and give us your opinion.
