Christmas Raft up - 2021

5 December 2021

Today is the day of the Raft up.  Weather looks OKish.

The plan is to meet at the Western side of Motuhoa Island from 14.00 (no real set time).

Below are details of where and how to get there - it shows the route for deep draft boats.  High tide is 17.07 so shallower draft boats could cut the corner but each skipper is responsible for their own vessel.

 

     

Coke Bottle Race - rules

Only rules are that the boat has to have a hull made from a coke bottle,  be sail powered and no fibreglass, resin etc.

If you would like Further information  you can contact Haeg Pettersen or Adam Yates

We have some top events coming up (Covid willing) this summer👇

👉 First up Sunday 5th December (afternoon), the annual MMYC family Christmas 🎄 raft up, in a sunny sheltered spot somewhere in the Tauranga harbour for a few yarns, a swim and some light refreshments.

Usually we aim for the Omokoroa side of Motuhoa, the exact location will be communicated via the usual channels and 77. For catering purposes, please email info@mmyc.org.nz with your boat name and estimated POB.

The fun but frightfully competitive Coke bottle boat race challenge will also be held at the raftup. The rules are simple: Create the fastest coke bottle boat. Boat must have only one coke bottle as the hull. No motor. No glue. You can make in advance or scavenge on the day.

👉 First up for 2022 Saturday 12th February, second race of the Summer Triple Series - the Whangamata Regatta, sailing from Tauranga to Whangamata.

👉 Saturday 5th of March, final race of the Triple Series - get ready and set to go for the race to Mayor Island.

👉 Rounding off the summer on Sunday 20th March is the inaugural Sandbank Cricket Challenge, quite possibly the best amature cricket venue in NZ, where the panoramic waterside view counts and the points don't (really) matter.

Sailing Instructions, NOR and entry forms are on the website.

Sea ya out there ⛵⛵⛵
