The RNZYS are thrilled to confirm that we have received 28 entries for the RNZYS Three Kings Offshore Race starting on Thursday 18th November 2021.

With just 40 spots up for grabs, there are now only 12 spots in this historic race remaining. If you are wanting to take part we encourage you to get your entry in ASAP as this will sell out! 

There is an incredible calibre of yachts already signed up to race, ensuring this is going to be a sensational event during the Squadron’s 150th year celebrations. See below for the full list of entries to date…

The full 28 boat entry list to date


Starting at Westhaven on Thursday 18th November and heading North, the yachts will sail up past Cape Reinga and on to the Three Kings through the challenging strip of water where the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea converge. The fleet will then battle it out to see who can be first around the group of islands traditionally known for their diving and excellent fishing, before turning the corner and hoping for a quick blast home, rather than a long up-hill slog to the finish.

This 500nm race is Cat 2 with Advanced Sea Survival and First Aid Certifications recommended. With the continued growth in two handed racing the RNZYS are pleased to have the support of the Short Handed Sailing Association of New Zealand (SSANZ) for this race. The Three Kings Race acts as a great lead in to the SSANZ 2022 Northern Triangle, and the 2023 Round North Island, and could be used to qualify for the RNI.

The race will use the YellowBrick tracking system, giving followers live position tracking reports, and many of the yachts intending to enter will provide onboard updates that will be shared with our followers via the RNZYS Auckland to Three Kings Offshore Race Facebook page.
