Richmond make Friday nights special

Issue date

The Richmond Yacht Club are preparing for their 22nd season of their Friday Night Special series, which is a great chance for inexperienced adults to enjoy a series of eight social races on eight different yachts throughout the summer.

The Victoria Friday Night Special is a unique and popular series aimed at getting newcomers on boats and experiencing sailing in a sociable and relaxed environment.

The series includes an introduction session and eight fun Friday night races over the summer months that’ll give you time and training on the water. 

You’ll learn by doing. Each race you’ll be allocated to crew on a different yacht ranging from 26-44 feet followed by a short skills seminar over a beer back at the clubhouse located at Westhaven Marina by the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

With its non-extras format, this is also a great opportunity for novice skippers to sail among other boats in a friendly competition.

It costs $250, which includes an annual Richmond Yacht Club crew membership.
