Kerikeri Cruising Club in association with Vava'u Yacht Club
The Kerikeri Cruising Club has cancelled the 2017 Vava’u Race.
Chairman of the Vava’u Race Committee Mark Beauchamp says “We only had two official entries with eight weeks to go. Some of the twenty three boats that had registered their interest later withdrew, indicating they would not be starting"
“We put a great deal of work into this event in both Kerikeri and Vava’u but unfortunately we didn’t attract a fleet and in the end time was against us”.
The committee thanks the sponsors who had supported the race: Mondo Travel Kerikeri, Tonga Beach Resort, New World Kerikeri, UK Sailmakers, Mount Gay Rum, Real Tonga Airlines and Reefrite Engineering.
