Country's biggest yacht race starts in three weeks

The PIC Insurance Brokers Coastal Classic starts in Auckland and finishes in Russell on Friday 25 October.

Is it America’s Cup fever, or simply anticipation of summer sailing? Three weeks out from the start, the hundredth entry has already been received in the PIC Insurance Brokers Coastal Classic Yacht Race. The race – which is famous for its chaotic and colourful mass start off Devonport Wharf, is the spring ice breaker for an estimated 180 boats and 1,000 yachties each year.

It is 119 nautical miles long and depending on the boat you are on, can be a sprint or a marathon: it takes anything from sub six hours for the fastest boats, to more than 24 hours for the less performance oriented.

The finish line is off the historic Russell Wharf in the Bay of Islands, and the sail up the eastern coast of the North Island of New Zealand is scenic and usually challenging.

The arrival in the town of Russell is marked with a party and terrific festivities.

Headline entrants include the giant trimarans TeamVodafone Sailing and Team Australia, rivaling each other for the first time in New Zealand waters, and Jim Delegat’s new 70 foot Giacomo, formerly known as Groupama, winner of the Volvo Ocean Race, and likely to be the biggest entrant.

“We welcome Giacomo and Team Australia to the fleet for the first time, but the true heroes of the race are the boats owned by ordinary people, out there having fantastic adventures with family and friends,” says race spokesperson Matthew Flynn.

The boats race in eight race divisions categorised by size and speed. A chance to win an Audi A1 is one of the feature prizes, along with another $30,000 of technological and marine related gear from sponsors that include PIC Insurance Brokers, BG, Jackson Electrical Industries Limited, Yachting New Zealand, Dirty Dog, Elf Oils, Musto, Mount Gay Rum, Railblaza, and

The race starts at 10am on Friday 25 October off Devonport Wharf in Auckland. Boat tracking, commentary, progress times, photos and video will be available from the race start on

The PIC Insurance Brokers Coastal Classic is organised by the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club. Entries close on Friday 11 October.

$10 Fee for Late Boat Registrations

Check your boat’s registration documents before you set sail.

You’ve experienced one of the two happiest days in a boat owner’s life.  You can’t wait to hit the high seas and showboat around Lanier.

Just one more thing.  Be sure your boat is properly registered.

Have you been holding off on renewing your boat’s registration?  Don’t dawdle.  Georgia boat owners with expired registrations are encouraged to renew their boat decals before October 24, 2013.

After that, a new state law kicks in, adding a $10 late fee for renewal after expiration.

“The 2013 legislature passed a new law that encourages timely registration,” says Dan Forster, Director of the Wildlife Resources Division.  “Often boat owners put off registration until just before July 4th or other major summer holidays, and the resulting rush create a backlog for all wishing to renew their registrations and for persons trying to register a new boat to use for the holidays. This new law will help encourage boat owners to register throughout the year, resulting in better service for all.”

Boat registrations are good for three years.  They expire on the last day of the owner’s birth month in the third year of registration. The new law adds a $10 fee if the registration renewal is mailed or completed by telephone or using the online registration after the expiration date.  This requirement will be enforced beginning October 24.

In an effort to notify boat owners about their expiring registrations, the Wildlife Resources Division mails a renewal notice the first week of the month before expiration (approximately 55 days in advance). Registration renewal notices mailed September 1st for October 31st boat expirations have a notice about the new late fee.

Transferring ownership of a vessel?

This law additionally allows new owners of used boats that have an existing Georgia registration to receive three full years of registration at transfer and eliminates the transfer fee.  This transfer provision also begins October 24.

“This new transfer provision giving three full years of registration at transfer will save money for most boat owners,” says Forster.

How to Renew, Transfer or Register a New Boat

New boat registrations and transfers of ownership for boats with existing Georgia registrations may be done by mail or telephone (1-800-366-2661).  The late fee does not apply to ownership transfers or new Georgia boat registrations.

Boat registration renewals may be returned with renewal form by mail, or done by telephone at 1-800-366-2661 or by visiting the online sales site at

Owners of Georgia boats must notify DNR within 15 days if their address changes from that shown on their boat registration card, or if they sell their boat.  Address changes and notification of boat sale may be done by calling 1-800-366-2661. Boat owners can also change their address by logging into their customer account at
