Welcome to the PIC Coastal Classic Yacht Race 2020 - one of New Zealand’s iconic yacht races up the E coast of North Island, from Auckland to the harbour at Russell. Originally raced by speedboats in the 1920s, aiming at speed records, the yacht race, now a classic in it’s own right, was first conceived in the 1980s by a member of the Auckland Multihull Sailing Association who wanted to recapture the historic course. The event is, of course, now raced in classes – Multihull, Monohull and Cruising – and continues to have a wide range of prizes on offer, not just for division winners, but for seamanship and even for the littlest boat to finish!

Sailonline is delighted once again to be hosting the virtual version of the “Coastal Classic”, sponsored as always by PIC, and we shall again be racing our trusty 60ft Trimaran, which should keep us reasonably competitive with the IRL Multihull racers. The virtual race will open for practice on 17 October 2020 at 2100utc to allow ample time for friends and family of IRL racers to find us and learn how to compete on our platform.
