We are back! And all fired up to make your 2018 PIC Coastal Classic experience a good one.
Entries are now open for the 2018 PIC Coastal Classic online right here. This is the 36th time the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club has hosted the Great Race North and with just less than 200 day to go, we have ambitious plans for the year ahead. Can you help us get 200 boats on the start line? We will be working hard to encourage more boats, first timers and a return of the smaller boats for an adventure packed weekend from Auckland to Russell in the Bay of Islands. Last year we introduced the cruise rally division, and we’ve since listened to your feedback – you loved this and were by no means in cruise mode! We will continue to expand the cruising division, and aim to sweeten the prize pot for you competitive types.
'The Coastal' has a special place in the hearts of many of us, and we want this to showcase what is uniquely special about sailing in New Zealand. Thanks to our principle partner PIC, we are also working to make the event more visible and spectator friendly for your friends at family on shore.
Please spread the word, invite your crews and friends and family to join you for a great weekend on the water starting 19 October 2018. Until then, good sailing! From all of the Coastal Committee.
