Racing

 The club has a range of evening and weekend race series throughout the summer, usually from early of October to the middle of May each season. We have a couple of winter series inter-club series in the cooler months; one with Opua and other with Opua and Kerikeri. 

The Racing Schedule and ODD listing for 2018-19:

Evening Races Season

Made up of generously supported Cater Marine and Omata Estate series on alternative Wednesdays and the Willis Sails series fortnightly on a Friday. Apart from the prizes at stake are a variety of Cups and Trophies divided into a Spring and Summer Series for each made up of six or seven races before and after Christmas each season.
