Marsden Cove Marina Route 66
The Marsden Cove Marina Route 66 is Richmond Yacht Club’s ‘short’ coastal race – 66nm from Auckland to Marsden Cove, Whangarei. Organised in association with Onerahi YC, the race includes open keeler, multihull and the ‘Route 1’ singlehanded divisions. With a 9AM start you’ll finish Friday evening with time to join in the party at Marsden Cove Marina. It is a great introduction to coastal racing for new boats as the safety requirements are Cat 4+ and the fleet stays within the barrier islands.
Course: From the Start (Auckland) to Kawau Island (P), Little Barrier Island (S),Sail Rock (S), Whangarei Fairway Buoy (P), Whangarei Channel Number 7 Buoy (S), to the Finish (Marsden Point)
