Welcome to the 2017 PIC Insurance Brokers Coastal Classic Yacht Race.

Thirty-six years ago a member of the Auckland Multihull Sailing Association had the idea of racing from the Devonport/Orakei area of Auckland's harbour up the east coast of New Zealand's North Island, to the harbour of Russell, in the tradition of the speedboats of the 1920s. Since then the race from Auckland to Russell has become known the world over as the Coastal Classic and these days is raced in classes with a wide range of prizes on offer - for division winners, for seamanship and even for the littlest boat finishing.

Sailonline is delighted to again host the virtual version of this New Zealand classic race and this year we are returning to a multihull, our 60ft Trimaran, which should make us more competitive with the IRL race front-runners but sadly may well see us leaving behind SOLer NZL_WairuaExpress in his Beale 35, Open Country who is competing again this year.

Racing in/around the Hauraki Gulf will always bring reminders of SOLer yachtyakka who regularly raced this course on Promise so cast a thought to the skies and yakka’s memory as you race up the coast this time.
