Racing

It's always a great day for sailing!

NOTICE TO ALL SKIPPERS AND CREW MEMBERS FROM THE WESTHAVEN MARINA OFFICE

TIME LIMITS FOR RACE CODES:

If you are a crew member using Westhaven’s race codes, please be aware that codes will now allow access to the marina piers from 2pm – 9pm on weekdays and 7am – 9pm on weekends and public holidays starting from Monday 11th December 2017.

Westhaven says that all customers value security, and that sharing race codes increases risk to both your boat and property.  Westhaven reminds customers that codes should not be shared or used for any reason other than racing.  Many of our customers do not participate in yacht racing, and we must respect the security of their property.

In order to continue issuing a race code, our expectation is that the code is only used for the purpose of racing crew access.

If you are a regular crew member, it is recommended that you apply at the office for a swipe tag that will allow you 24/7 access to pier gates.  The cost is $30 and you will need photo identity.

Club racing forms the backbone of New Zealand yachting. At Ponsonby Cruising Club we offer a selection of keelboat racing options throughout the year. We’re proud of the events we run, which we try to keep as smooth and professional as possible. Our emphasis is on having fun, so we try to ensure that our races are relaxed affairs, with simple but effective courses to make your sailing as enjoyable as possible.

After a fun days racing on the harbour, most crews come back to the clubhouse for an informal prizegiving, a few drinks, and some great food prepared by our host Kevin.
