36° Brokers are excited to announce we are back onboard sponsoring the Cruising Rally for the PIC Costal Classic 2021 in what we hope will be the biggest year yet!

The Cruising Rally is non-competitive, and a great way to bring cruisers together for the start of the summer sailing season. It’s an awesome way for novice sailors to get out there racing, and for everyone to have a bit of fun out on the water.

No wind? Now worries! Check out how teams survived in last years wrap up article!

This year the Cruising division has increased the permitted motoring time to a total of 5hrs! So whether you’re looking for a more leisurely ride up to the Bay, or are happy to slug it out, changing sails and scouring the weather map for the best wind shifts, the choice is yours how you run the race!IMG 2263
