Round White Island – Friday 15th November 2019
About the race
This Category 3+ race takes the yachts from Auckland, down south to the Bay of Plenty, round White Island, and back to Auckland.
At 320 nautical miles it isn’t a race for just anybody!
The Round White Island Race is perfect for those needing offshore racing experience or need a qualifying race for another series.
In 2011 the race had a different course and sent the fleet north rather than south. The reason being was due to the Rena wreck and the amount of debris still on the course area.
