24-Hour Endurance Yacht Race taking shape

The inaugural 24-Hour Endurance Yacht Race on Wellington Harbour is rapidly approaching, with a steady stream of expressions of interest from skippers keen to enter.

The concept was borrowed from similar races in Auckland and Australia and is proving popular. It will be held on April 8, when yachts will sail a 12-mile circuit on Wellington Harbour as many times as possible during the 24-hour period. A handicap system will be in place, meaning all yachts – big or small, fast or not so fast – an equal opportunity to win the race.
