News Doyle sails dominated in Auckland to Tauranga Yacht Race

14 Apr 2017

It was another Doyle sails feat in the 2017 Auckland to Tauranga Yacht Race. The day long race covering 130 miles brought out a fleet of 10 yachts split into two divisions.

Andy Pilcher from Doyle Sails New Zealand was onboard Anarchy and said they had a flying start, but were just pipped for line honours by Sir Peter Blake's classic Whitbred Maxi Steinlager 2.

That didn't stop them from completing the race in just over 14 hours and grabbing 1st place in Division A PHRF. Below, are other boats that rocked:
