Pacrim 2018 Report
This year’s Pacrim series was sailed in New Zealand in wild and windy conditions resulting in a few collisions and even the sinking of one of the yachts. For the results and a full report on the racing by Roger Yeo, go to the March edition of the Bilge within the News and Events section of the website.
Held every 2 years
The regatta is held every two years. Each yacht club hosts the event on a rotational basis. The next regatta is being held in New Zealand in March of this year. Crews from each club sail as a team and aim to have two boats finishing ahead of the team whom they are competing against. After four days of ‘round robin’ races, the club with the best overall result is the winner.
More than sailing
This event is about more than just sailing. Visiting crews usually stay with friends and family of the host yacht club, ensuring that the visitors get a taste of family life in the host country. There is always plenty of activities for non-sailing partners and friends who enjoy attending Pacrim. The host club organises tours to places of interest, entertainment and cultural events during the regatta.
