White Island Race – Amendment to Sailing Instructions

The race committee has amended the Sailing Instructions for White Island Race.

Section 4 stated the race was on 15th November.  This is incorrect.  The race is to be held on SATURDAY 16th November starting at 0800.

New Sailing instructions are found here: Sailing Instructions White Island Race  V2.




Legends and White Island Race (Triple Series)

The 2019 My Legends has finished and all boats report that the event was especially successful.  Report and results can be found on the Legends tab.

The next event on the calendar is the White Island race scheduled for 16 November.

Notice of Race and Sailing instructions has been issued and can be found here:  White Island Notice of race and SI.

Entry Form can be found here:  White Island Entry Form.




Legends update

My Legends Regatta has just finished.

All boats, skippers and crew had a testing time getting to the island with a strong westerly developing into a 35knot plus blast for the finish.  Hence, boats coming in later were directed to finish at Coralie Bay to avoid the lumpy crossing from Opito Bay to the island.

The westerly blew most of the weekend and the fleet gathered at Coralie Bay for the Saturday prizegiving after another boisterous race around the island.

The change to hold the Sunday race earlier resulted in more boats competing and attending the prize giving in the cove.

The final leg home to Tauranga provided the best sailing of the weekend with a moderate North Westerly allowing some boats to fly spinnakers to whole way.

Important information:

PrizeGiving: This will be held at MOSC on Saturday starting at 5.00pm.

Photo Competition:  Entries to this are to be emailed to legends@mmyc.org.nz before Friday 1st November 5.00pm.

Log Sheet (Attachment C) is to be emailed to legends@mmyc.org.nz before 12.00pm Thursday 31st, as per the sailing instructions.


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:  Info@mmyc.org.nz




Summer 2018-2019

Summer 2018 – 2019. – 

This summer the emphasis is on Adventure Sailing events.  These events are not strictly races, but opportunities for all yachties in Tauranga to participate with others either for cruising to a common destination or testing themselves against other boats.

The dates of the scheduled events are shown under the calendar here, but each event will be organised according to the weather and number of participants in the week beforehand.

Register your interest in participating by emailing info@mmyc.org.nz to ensure that you receive the updates.
