Racing At Tasman Bay Cruising Club

TBCC organise yacht races virtually all year round with a program that suits all levels of skill and competition.

Regular Club Races

  • Wednesday evening series
    Wednesday twilight races during the period of daylight saving create a great opportunity to break the week with a friendly, competitive sail with your friends and then back to the club for a meal and prize giving. Handicaps are designed to reward a good sail and to make it possible for any boat to win on the night. Prizes are generous.
  • Offshore series
    For those who want to stretch their legs the Offshore Series makes the best use of Tasman Bay with courses from 30nm to 90nm often combined with a raft up over night.
  • The three islands series
    The Three Islands Series takes the boats to and from the Able Tasman National Park either in a single day or with an overnight raft up.
  • Friday evening series
    Later in summer there is a very relaxed Friday evening series with white sails only, no spinnakers and a Mark Foy start, for a relaxed opportunity for the less experienced sailors and guests to enjoy the sport.
  • Short handed sailing
    Short handed sailing events and pursuit racing are also in the program.
  • Winter program
    A winter program for the hardcore sailors runs on weekends with many typical Nelson days, with snow capped mountains and flat, blue seas.
