"Each boat must carry a dinghy (towed or ondeck)" - you need them to get ashore for the social hour.....or longer!
The Cruising Rallies are made up of a fleet of yachts with the prerequisite of having families join the sailors and it being about the stories on the beach, guitars playing and memories being made, just like it was in the good old days! The Race Committee will stay at the start line for 30 minutes if you prefer to sail casually over the start line. Catamarans and power boats most welcome and encouraged to join in, we are always happy to have you involved and you may even like to help with the starts and finishes. For the Cats if there are more than six you may even have your own division! Destinations such as Woody Bay, Rakino Island; Oneroa, Rocky Bay, Man ‘o’ War Bay, Waiheke Island and for the first time in a long time Mahurangi to join with the Mahurangi Regatta Festivities, Anniversary Weekend. In 2014-15 there will be some combined starts with Richmond Yacht Club, Ponsonby Cruising Club and Royal Akarana Yacht Club. There may also be a mark Foy Start for those with crew who are not so keen on a mass start!
