Ticket Information:

  • Crew membership & race entry fee: $170.00

Richmond Yacht Club Victoria's Friday night special.

We run this series of 8 races over the summer months for adults who would like to experience “a taste of sailing”, or who have experience and are looking to find a place as crew on a boat.

Each race you are allocated to a different boat which can range in size from a 22ft to 44ft yacht. It is also a form of networking whereby crew members are encouraged to let skippers know that they are available to crew for any of their other racing throughout the year.

We also run a crew database for skippers looking for crew.

These popular events allow newcomers to experience sailing (and its social side) in a friendly and relaxed environment. Victoria's Friday Night Special is a series of fun sailing races around the harbour followed by workshops introducing the basics of sailing after each race.

To be eligible for this series you must have a current crew membership $92, $18 for the basics of sailing seminars and pay a race entry fee of $60 for the series (total of $170).

If you are interested please contact the Richmond Yacht Club for a Membership Nomination form and the Race Entry form.

You can either post your forms and cheques to: Richmond Yacht Club, PO Box 46324, Auckland 1147; or you may pay by credit card by completing the details on the race entry form, and then faxing the forms to the club on 09 360 2379.

As there are limited places available, subs and race fees must be paid prior to the commencement of the first race you participate in. Acceptance will be on a first come, first served basis. To assist with planning, please register your interest as early as possible to get the best value for your money and as many races on the water as possible.

An information pack will be issued after registration has been received and accepted.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.
