Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club is pleased to announce the return of the Central Triangle race in 2022 starting Friday March 4 (a few weeks after the Northern Triangle.) First run as a two handed event in 2013, then as a fully crewed event in 2015, the 2022 event will be a combined fully crewed and two handed inclusive event. For the two handed entrants it’s an ideal qualifier race for RNI 2023 especially for boats south of the Bombays.
The approximately 730nm race starts from Wellington and boats head south on the 190nm leg to Akaroa. After a short stopover, experiencing the fabulous local hospitality, boats head north on the longest leg (350nm) to Napier. With an opportunity to visit the local wineries, complete some repairs or rest up, the boats then complete the triangle with the return 200nm leg to Wellington.
