MRX Yachting & the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron invite RSYS Members and crews to submit an “Expression of Interest” to compete in the 2017 Farr MRX Pacific Keelboat Challenge running 23-26 March.
The Challenge is an invitation fleet racing event for leading yacht clubs around the world. Entries are invited from the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Asia, Australia, the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. The Regatta will be organised by RNZYS and Buckland’s Beach Yacht Club as part of the Auckland Regatta.
The event will be sailed in 11 identical Farr 10.2 metre MRX Yachts each with six crew. There will be one practice day and three race days. Up to 13 windward leeward and harbour course races will be held on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.
This strict one design racing provides the very best crew vs crew competition! The boats are ready to sail and cannot be altered, so all you need to bring is an able crew and your sailing gear.
