Chance for new sailors
The Richmond Yacht Club is offering novice sailors the chance to hit the water.
From tonight until March 28 it will run the Friday Night Special social racing series.
It allows people with little or no sailing experience to race on keelboats at a minimal cost.
New sailors are guided by experienced skippers as they race around the buoys on the harbour.
The cost to enter the series is $150. The Westhaven-based club finds yachts for participants to sail on, with racing starting at 6pm.
