Sponsoring update & Season start


Today the Interclub Series gets under way…

…with the first race at Lowry Bay Yacht Club. We are excited to be able to repeat this collaboration between all the three keel-boat racing clubs in Wellington:

  • Evans Bay Yacht and Motor Boat Club (https://www.ebymbc.org.nz/)
  • Lowry Bay Yacht Club (https://www.lbyc.org.nz/)
  • Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club

We are participating in each other’s opening days (7th, 13th and 22nd October) for a start and will race again together later in the season. It will be great to see a big fleet decorating the harbour!

And then we have more exciting news on the sponsoring front:

We are very happy to welcome two new sponsors to our group of supporters:

Dunning Thornton is one of the largest specialist structural engineering offices in Wellington and they are also helping us with the Earthquake Strengthening project. Thank you very much, Paul and the Dunning Thornton Consultants team, for sponsoring our Offshore fleet this year!

And we also keep the tradition of the Rum price alive thanks to Lola Stays, who sponsors our Rum Race series for the season. Just across the road, the cafe offers casual eats and spiffing drinks daily from 7am till late.

Please cheer for our new sponsors and show them your support.

Keen to see your name and logo here?
