Team Vodafone has confirmed their entry to the International Paints Auckland to Tauranga Yacht Race on this coming Easter weekend.

Uncooperative weather during the last two years races has foiled their attempts at bettering the existing record of 9 Hours 35 minutes set by the maxi Zana in 2005. They are looking forward to the third time being the charm.

Skipper Simon Hull says 'The last two races have been in frustratingly light airs. We are looking forward to a good breeze so we can get a chance at setting our marker with an elapsed time record. The boat and crew are ready to take a real hard run at it and see what we can do.' All eyes will be watching as Team Vodafone speeds their way to Tauranga.

Make plans and enter now

The Tauranga Yacht and Powerboat Club’s annual Easter weekend Auckland to Tauranga race is shaping up to be a good one. Early indications of interest are strong and some new plans by the club will mean a good time for all. The start in front of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is set for 1000 on April 5th for which will hopefully be a quick ride down the coast.

'In the last 12 months TYPBC has worked hard to improve our use of technology for our yacht races.' says Commodore Wayne Eaton. 'For the first time, our new club website will feature real time updates from the yachts during the race which will include photos and short video clips. We have listened to what participants would like to see, and now we are in a position to provide it. TYPBC sailors are keen to be great hosts and showcase our area.'

Plans for the traditional Friday night prizegiving and blowout party are set in place. Visiting yachts will be able to complete the race, enjoy a great night, and have plenty of time for the return trip home. TYPBC will be rolling out the red carpet for race entrants.

Now is a great time to step up and support the Tauranga area and have a fantastic weekend at the same time! The NOR and Entry Forms can be found on the new Club website at www.yacht.org.nz Have questions, want more information? Just email office@yacht.org.nz for all the info.

Make plans now to be part of the fun!
