The Challenging Period under which the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron will accept further challenges from eligible yacht clubs ( in addition to the challenge received from the Challenger of Record, Circolo della Vela Sicilia ) starts on the 1st of January 2018 and closes on the 30th of June 2018. There is also a late entry period requiring payment of a higher entry fee which is open until the 30th of November 2018.
RNZYS has today issued Trustee Memorandum No 1 to provide prospective challengers with details of how to file a Notice of Challenge and make the first entry fee payment.
