Summary Details

THE 3RD ANNUAL GREAT BLAKE RACE!

THANK YOU to everyone who supported the third-annual Great Blake Race held on Thursday 3 November at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Hopefully everyone had as much fun as we did!

Congratulations to all the successful bidders of some fantastic auction items and also the race winners of the day – the crew of Zamzimah; many of whom were good friends and crew members of Sir Peter Blake himself.

Both the race and the charity auction were a success and together we raised around $30,000 for the Trust’s Young Blake Expedition programmes which take young New Zealanders on life-changing adventures that follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter and continue his legacy. These adventures expose them to rare scientific and environmental opportunities that equip them with essential skills to become our future leaders.

All items were generously donated by our sponsors and supporters.
