A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to this the success of this year's Great Blake Race!
Thanks to more than 550 participants who bought tickets and the generosity of our supporters who donated auction items to this year's event, the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron and the Sir Peter Blake Trust managed to raise more than $130,000! A portion of this profit will go directly to our Young Blake Expeditions programme which prepares and inspires our future environmental leaders.
Despite the weather which meant the racing part of the event could not go ahead, hundreds of supporters packed the room at the RNZYS for a fantastic evening of live entertainment, food and beverage and a live auction.
