2018 WineWorks Marlborough Wine Race – Friday 2nd November 2018


The WineWorks Marlborough Wine Race trophy was contested on December 1st 2017 when yachties raced across the Cook Straight in a battle to land our new release Marlborough wine on our capital's shores. In conjunction with the handicap trophy mentioned above, Wine Marlborough, sponsored a trophy for the yacht that took out line honours. This year's race will be held on Friday 2nd November 2018.

Since the race began in 2001, it has not only grown in size but vigour. In 2017, 45 yachts and 260 sailors raced across our most famous piece of water to Wellington. The race is organised by the Waikawa Boating Club. Yachts require a Category 3 safety certificate to be eligible to enter. Yachts and crews wanting to register to take part in the race can email for more information.

This event has become a highlight on the New Zealand Offshore race calendar and the two significant developments to the 2017 event has seen even more wineries to enter more labels, with any varietal now able to be entered.

The second exciting addition is the introduction of the Wine Marlborough Series, raced over two Friday evenings prior to the race and starting in early October.
