Sails! Not Socks!

It is probably going to come as a shock to you, but Father’s Day will be upon us before we know it! We have all bought Dad that pair of woollen socks as a last minute rush for Father’s Day before, but Akarana has something better!

Give your Dad the Father’s Day Challenge. RAYC is running its first ever Father’s Day racing event. The race course will be set up just outside the RAYC clubrooms with easy viewing for the family. Everything will be supplied by RAYC including boats and sails. We have lifejackets and a safety boat on standby in case some of the Dads go for an unintentional swim!

The entry fee is just $25 and includes a complimentary drink for Dad after he has finished racing. Check out The Rules for more information.

My Dad was hugely involved in my life as a young sailor, from pushing my boat off the beach for the first time when I was a chubby eight-year-old , to sitting at the dining table watching me use a knife, fork and a bottle of Watties Sauce to explain Mark Room to him. If my Dad was in Auckland for Father’s Day, I know I would be on the water racing with him!

Sign up for the Father’s Day Challenge and give your Dad an experience for Father’s Day.
