The fleet are now all well over half way through leg 2 of the @RNZ2019. With only 221nm left to run for Titanium at the front of the fleet, and the conditions set to get more challenging for the crews over the weekend as the weather fronts move across the South Island, the teams are now well into routines and ready for the challenges that lay ahead in the coming few days.

Cheers to the weekend and day 5 of leg 2! ... See MoreSee Less

While the fleet makes their way down the West Coast. Seems an appropriate time for a cheeky, shameless plug for SSANZ!

These races are run primarily with YOUR support. Membership is $70 for the year (cheapest YNZ affiliated yacht club in NZ). There is also great yachting in the way of the ENDURO and TRIPLE SERIES yet to come in 2019. Also RNI2020 is happening!!!!
