WOS Winter Racing

skills cropped

Racing is the best way to improve your sailing skills. Whether or not you are competitive or into sailing around the buoys, there is nothing like actually having to get the boat to a fixed point as a group to develop your skills. Winter is also one of the best times for racing as the Winter Series see’s some of the biggest fleet sizes of the year and as racing is held fortnightly it doesn’t take up all your spare time. 

The RPNYC Winter Series is run over alternate Sundays commencing on 14 June. Both of the Wellington Ocean Sports boats will be competing and there are several ways you can get involved.  

Racing Crew

Our next Racing Crew course commences on Sunday 7 June, it runs for 4 consecutive Sundays and will compete in the first two races of the Winter Series (the course participants will also have first option to carry on and complete the 5 race series). The advantage of doing this course as opposed to simply going racing is that over a four day period we will take you step by step through hoisting, lowering and trimming spinnakers, all with the aim of making you “competent crew on a racing boat”. This will also give you greater confidence when taking up RPNYC member crew requests.

Winter Series

For those that have already done the Racing Crew course or those who can only undertake the actual racing days we have dedicated a boat for the races only. You can enrol on this boat now for the 5 races series for only $225. Once we see how the places fill we might make individual race days available, but at this stage priority is going to those that can commit to the entire series. Also we have discounted the full series, so doing a one off race will cost more than a fifth of $225. As is always the case when sailing with us everything you need is provided and there will be an instructor on the boat.

Crewing on RPNYC Member Boats

For those that took up our offer of highly discounted RPNYC membership at the end of your course you are eligible to crew on members boats. As the start of the Winter Series approaches we expect several crew requests to be received from RPNYC boat owners, these will be forwarded to WOS grads via email.

Grad Casual Sailing

The general public can hire the Wellington Ocean Sports boats out at $201 per hour plus gst. We do however offer the boats to those who have completed our learn to sail course at $125 per hour. So get a group together and book some time out on the water. There is always an instructor on board so it’s essentially like an additional session on one of our courses. You can hire the boats anytime they are available for either cruising or any of the RPNYC races.
