Masonic Teams Race is Back
Published 00:00 on 17 Apr 2021
We are thrilled to see the return of the Masonic Cup Teams Race for 2021 on Sunday 18th April.
It's one of our most popular afternoon club races - a Wakatere classic as we venture around North Head to the inner harbour. The race was originally sponsored by the former Masonic Tavern and sailors were known to leap ashore for refreshments mid-race.
All entries on the day will be distributed amongst SIX TEAMS. This year's team leaders will be introduced to you on Sunday - all have significant sailing backgrounds and skills to share.
Racing will start off Wakatere, passing North Head to a mark off/near the old Masonic Tavern in Devonport - no stopping for refreshments anymore, straight home. The Opti Green fleet will have a shorter course.
Race Officer Dean Coleman will make the team allocation just before briefing so please sign on early using the QR code for the day.
