Rum Racing

Rum racing on Thursday is not just about the rum, although there is some involved in the post match celebrations! The Stewart’s routinely pick up most of the prizes at the Ponsonby Cruising Club’s weekly fixture with between 5 and 8 Stewarts each race day. The racing is casual as there is no series prize, but its close, very competitve and no one wants to lose!

If you havent raced before, its a great way to learn the basics and spend a very enjoyable afternoon with other owners and crew. It is also an opportunity to test your boats state of tune against other top performing Stewarts or to get a ride on another boat and learn a few new tricks!  For those who simply want to have a sail, the price is a few beverages for the best time on a central Auckland Thursday afternoon all year round.  Contact Cherry for more details.
