Mills Reef - WOW Race 7 2017

WOW had their seventh race of the season last Thursday. With varible winds and out going tide the course was set so that the boats were heading down the west via the Otumoetai channel and finishing from the shipping channel.  In the light many boats were flying their spinnakers quit shy especially around the last channel mark before the finish line.  Whatever finished well before Freedom Express who was followed by High Point, then General Jackson. It was a great race for the crews to have practice with the spinnaker. 

Thanks again to all our Sponsors who support us and the generous boat owners who provide their boats. 

Here at WOW we like to have fun as well as practise our sailing so for the last race of each half of the season we dress to a theme...and there's been some beauties over the years!

If anyone has any stories to tell about their WOW experience then please email them to
