MRX Fleet Gears up for 20th Anniversary Celebrations

Yes, the MRX fleet was launched almost 20 years ago – and it is still one of the best fleets of its type in the world! We will be organising a number of events on and off the water to make this a very special year for the Fleet.

The activities will begin in October, with:

Full Fleet Invitation Rum Race - for owners and their guests on the launch anniversary on Friday 8th October

Celebration Dinner - at the RNZYS on Friday 29th October to recognise the contributions of our Founders, Sponsors, Owners, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, and the successes of the sailors who have enjoyed sailing on the fleet. Pete Montgomery has kindly agreed to help solicit memorable tales from those present to add colour to the evening. Put a table together!

Match Racing Weekend - on the 30th & 31st October looks like becoming a sailor’s celebration with expressions of interest already from Team NZ, Dean Barker, Chris Dickson and Cameron Dunn and a team from Japan.

So many people have contributed to the success of the fleet - our Founders, Owners, Sponsors and Youth and Elite Sailors, the RNZYS, BBYC and Team NZ. These celebrations will provide a unique opportunity for these contributions to be recognised
