2019 Bay of Islands Sailing Week

Practice is important. It means you get to iron out all the crinkles, sort any issues, and fix that winch that decided to blow up ahead of what is a very serious, yet awesomely fun few days of racing.

We headed out to snap those who were out training in the gusty conditions, which unfortunately doesn’t look like what the fleets will get tomorrow, with PredictWind showing about 10 knots from the north. Oh well, that’s sailing!

The 17th edition of CRC Bay of Islands Sailing Week has a record number of boats, with the last count being 120 which is just awesome for the annual event hosted by an awesome team of volunteers and the Opua Cruising Club.

Sailors are encouraged to hit the marquee after racing to check out the results and take part in the post-race banter with competitors. If you’re at the event, don’t just sit on your boat and socialise with your crew, get yourself to the marquee and support the event and their sponsors!

Live Sail Die is at Bay Week for Doyle Sails, and each day of the regatta we will be on board racing with a team and following along the RIB with cameras and drones to capture the action. We will also be updating the Doyle Sails Instagram and Facebook stories so tune in to see what’s going on! Of course everything will also be on our social pages as well.

Even if you don’t have Doyle Sails on board, we will still be snapping, so if you’re at the event and we fly by, then give us a wave, hike harder (if there is breeze) and show the world what they’re missing by not being in New Zealand in January.

You can get all the official race news and updates via the dedicated website
