Starry Night to launch 2021 PIC Coastal Classic



As one of many additions to the PIC Coastal Classic yacht race this year, the NZ Multihull Yacht Club and PIC Insurance Brokers are pleased to announce the event’s inaugural cocktail gala event: Starry Night.


Sailors, supporters and friends of the PIC Coastal Classic are invited to Auckland’s iconic Eden Park on Friday 30th July to celebrate in style, and support the Starship Foundation with a sailing-themed silent auction with thanks to our generous network of event sponsors.


Anybody who has done the race will agree that there’s nothing quite like sailing into the darkness of Russell at the end of the race, finishing under the stars and celebrating well into the next night after prize giving. To bring a piece of this atmosphere down to Auckland and share it with our network and your partners and friends, PIC Insurance Brokers have hired one of the most popular bands from a recent afterparty – it will be a night not to be missed!


The PIC Coastal Classic has transformed into more than a yacht race both metaphorically and literally. For many New Zealanders the event is a yachting rite of passage and labour weekend tradition for nearly 40 years. The popularity of the non-competitive 36° Cruising Rally division added 3 years ago has shown us that you want more than a yacht race, and the event will soon reveal the next expansion into the boating community.


More details will be announced soon, and tickets will be on sale in June.
