The 2017 Harcourts Bay of Islands SUP Triple Crown

3-5 June 2017

Following on from the success of the 2016 Far North SUP Tour, this year we are proud to bring you an even more exciting schedule, with less travelling and more variety.

This year, all three events will be held in the Bay of Islands, over the Queen's Birthday Weekend. The overall plan is the same; a late start on Saturday, and an early finish on Monday, to allow those from further afield plenty of time to make it to/from home. Or to enjoy the huge range of other activities available in the Bay of Islands (see the 'other attractions' page)

However, the big difference this year, is that the three events will offer much more variety:

As before, each day will be a standalone event in its own right, with placings and prizes.

However, those entering all three events will also accumulate scores for the overall series. Yellow jerseys will be issued after day 1, and overall series prizes awarded at the end of the three day series. So consistency will be the key!

Board classes will be:

Age categories are:

in both sexes. A minimum of 3 entrants will be required to validate a category for prizes, otherwise entrants will be classified in the next most appropriate category. (example: if only one person enters as a veteran woman in 12'6 race class, their result will be scored in the masters category (assuming there are at least 2 other masters!)).

Entries on inflatable boards will be encouraged. All entrants will be asked to state whether they are racing on solid boards or inflatables, and if there are 3 or more inflatables racing in any category then separate prizes may be awarded, at the discretion of the race team.

We are very proud to have Harcourts Bay of Islands Real Estate as the headline sponsor for this tour; we are super grateful for their support. For those of you travelling from further afield to visit our part of the world, be warned that you're going to love it and move here straight away, so make sure you speak to Harcourts first!
