Great Blake Race 2017
A huge thank you to all those who supported the 2017 Great Blake Race at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron on Thursday 2 November! Together we raised more than $29,000!
With more than 650 people and 45 yachts, the scale of this year’s event and fundraising efforts made it the biggest Great Blake Race in its four-year history.
Congratulations to the Royal NZ Navy winners who took out first place on the water and to all those who walked away with one (or more) of our fantastic auction items.
All money raised from the event goes towards the SPBT Young Blake Expeditions (YBE) programme and the RNZYS International Sailing Fund. Our next YBE voyage will see talented young New Zealanders heading to the Kermadecs in early 2018 on board HMNZS Canterbury.
Thank you once again – your support is truly appreciated and we hope to see you again next year!
