The Latitude race has been rescheduled for Saturday 14 January 2017. Last year’s was a great success with 11 boats competing, and we’d love to see even more boats on the water this time.

Offshore Wine race 2014

After a challenging start with a postponement on Nov 6th due to forty knot winds that created unsafe racing conditions and a lack of wind causing a delay on Nov 7th, the 2014 WineWorks Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Yacht Race commenced at mid-morning under sunny skies and building wind.


{jcomments off}The last offshore race of the season was a real challenge – not because of high winds, but because of a lack of them.

There were five boats in the race: The Guarantee, Gucci, Wai-Aniwa, Am Meer, and Illusions. Some of the big girls and boys were either still out of town from the RNI or couldn’t get enough crew.

The 2013 Brothers Race proved to be one out of the box with champagne sailing conditions in the Cook Stait and plenty of tactics all the way there and back. The Race started at 0800 hours in a light southerly with a heavy overcast sky. With 13 starters (and finishers), the race was one of the best of the season so far.
