Winter Series 2019 – Dates and details

The 2019 winter series dates have been set!

Find the details here:

This year, we are trying a slightly different format.  We will have two divisions split according to spinnaker racing and no extra racing.

We hope to see boats out that would not want to have to fly spinnakers, but enjoy being out on the water for a bit of healthy competition.

All races are Mark Foy start so there is none of the start line jostling that can put your boat in precarious situations.

ISLAND CRUISE – 9th -10th March

The weekend of 9th March is the date for the next big sailing event.

We hope that the island cruise will be a mini Legends – a good reason to have a weekend away with fellow yachties from the club.

The destination is always weather dependant but options include Mayor, Motiti and Motuhoa.

The Brief programme is:

Friday 8th or Saturday9th – Cruise out to the island for a get together on board with other sailors.

Saturday 9th – An idle morning (or late arrival for those wanting to leave on Saturday)  and possibility of afternoon there and back race.  Social evening to follow.

Sunday  10th – Cruise home.

Let us know if you intend to join us by email to:




Island Beach Cricket!

And now for something completely different.

March 23rd will see the inaugural Mount Maunganui Yacht Club Island Beach Cricket challenge.

The concept is a simple one – to celebrate the especially low tide on Saturday March 23 the stumps will go down on the new bank in the middle of the harbour that the dredging has courteously created.  Two sides will be drawn to oppose each side of low – The Ebbs v The Floods.

Refreshments and some sort of trophy will be awarded at the prize giving to be held at Pilot bay once stumps are drawn.

We are hoping for a fun day out with boats intentionally mooring at the pesky bank for a change.  Start time is 1300 (low tide is 1401 – 0.1m).

Please indicate your intention to attend by emailing: or contacting Doug directly.
