Welcome to the PIC Insurance Brokers Coastal Classic. We are pleased to again have PIC Insurance Brokers as the main sponsor, and we had a great time with them last year. We hope you have all thought about your insurance needs and will contact them.
Last year was an epic race, challenging at times, but saw most boats arrive in good time, and able to enjoy the magic conditions in Russell, plus enjoy the inevitable post-race festivities. We had a lot of first time entries and the fleet numbers were again up, proving the continuing popularity of this special event.
The NZMHYC is very proud to organize this event each year and welcomes everyone back. Many boats have done the race a great number of times and it’s great to see them back year after year. A welcome also to new boats doing the race for the 1st time and I hope the earlier start will encourage smaller Yachts to enter . As every Coastal Classic there is big emphasis on safety and making sure everyone has a great sail up and a great weekend away.
So safe Yachting and I’ll see you on the start Line.
