Notice to Competitors

Unloading and Parking

Boats are to be unloaded from road trailers in the car park next to the compound and wheeled from there into the compound.  Road trailers are to be taken to the marked trailer storage area on the other side of Ocean View Parade and cars parked in the same grassed area. (See diagram).

On Sunday 19th, a popular Seaside Market will operate from 09:00 to 15:00 in the reserve adjacent to the yacht club. We will do what we can to reserve car parking at the western end of the grassed area.

Boat Storage

All boats are to be stored on beach trollies within the club compound which will be locked at night.  Since there is limited room, please keep your boat and gear stored neatly in the available space, being aware of the needs of others.


You must complete measurement before registering. Please do this as early as possible. Measuring time is officially from 12pm to 5pm on Wednesday. But early measuring should also be available on Tuesday afternoon. Measurement will be within the boat compound. For more details on getting measured: Click here


Sessions will be held on the Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons with World Apprentice Master World Champion Dave Ridley.  See the NZLA site for details.

Contest Dinner

A meal will be served at the NPYC on the evening of Friday 17th. Additional tickets can be purchased at the time of registration for $20 ea.


The club has changing rooms with showers.  Please leave the black sand outside, use the shower wet areas for wet gear and keep the dry areas as dry as possible.


To help with beach trolley grouping, identification and boat retrieval, Radials are to launched on the eastern (right hand) side of the beach, Standards to the western (left) of the sign.

Boat Washing

New Plymouth has water restrictions January through March. To limit water consumption and to avoid congestion, boats will pass through a spray system on entering the compound from the beach.  There will be no facility for individual boat washing on competition days.

Incafé Coffee

A barista will be on duty each morning to serve your expresso caffeine fix.  EFTPOS available.

Bar and Clubrooms
