Close RacingClose racing makes it fun for all

Each MRX can take 4 to 6 crew. The yachts are easy to handle and the crew do not need to have sailing experience. Competent sailors are required to be in charge of each boat. Close racing in responsive one design yachts ensures plenty of action. Events start and finish at Weshaven, just beneath the Auckland harbour bridge.
