Winter Series

Winter Series 2019

The 2019 season starts on Sunday 5 May with a breakfast at the MOSC and the opening handicap race later in the morning.

MMYC is proud of its Winter racing where members are encouraged to join together in sailing and fellowship during the colder months.  The surprising factor is the some of the best sailing days of the year occur during winter, so put the dates in the diary and let’s see you out on the water.

There are two racing series run throughout the winter season:

Fully Crewed:

The fully crewed series is run every 2nd Sunday afternoon.  Races start at 12.00 pm and run until 4.00pm at the latest.

This year we are running two different divisions-

                                        Spinnaker division for the slightly serious racers of any size.

                                        No extras division for the boats which enjoy a chance to get out on the

                                                                       water (with a bit of competition thrown in).

Prizegiving is held at the MOSC normally from 5pm (depending on finish times) where podium finishers are feted, prizes handed out and long and short stories told.

The MOSC can provide a great evening meal from the extensive menu to enable competitors to make an evening of it.

2 Handed series

The 2 handed series is for sailors who can’t get enough racing and like a challenge.

The series is run every third Saturday afternoon from 1.00pm.

The series is run in one division, with a Mark Foy start.

Prizegiving for the 2 handed series is held at the next prize giving for the fully crewed series.

All races are run with a Mark Foy handicapping system and every boat has a chance to capture a prize during the year.

The focus of the Mount Maunganui Yacht Club for this series is for enjoyable racing for all boats and crew, so come along and make the series your highlight of the year.
