Only 40 boats will get to experience this epic event

The Evolution Sails Northern Triangle race is set to be a sell out, and will be equivalent to a sold out U2 concert. You won’t want to miss it!
ENTRY IS LIMITED TO 40 BOATS
The race only has 40 entry spots for the 2022 Evolution Sails Northern Triangle, and based on the massive response we have had, well over that number are keen to do this race.
Unfortunately due to restrictions at our partner clubs, and to ensure a successful inaugural event – fleet numbers are restricted. 
Entries open for SSANZ members on Sunday 16th May at 7pm.
We are expecting that the race will sell out that evening. 
To have a valid entry on Sunday 16th May you must be a current member of SSANZ with your membership fees up to date.
The first 40 valid race entry tickets sold will be the lucky race participants.
If you are not fast enough – you will miss out! FOMO or the fear of missing out has already set in for some skippers.
As a result – we encourage you to ensure you purchase your race entry ‘ticket’ on Sunday 16th – as close to 7pm as possible.
You will only need basic details – your name, the boat name, an email, and a phone number to enter, and to pay the entry fee.
There will be boats and skippers who miss out on doing this race. Unfortunately, no amount of money, knowing the right people, bribery, or ridiculous amounts of rum offered will get you a magic entry spot.
The only way to enter is from Sunday 16th May, at 7pm, on our website for SSANZ members, and if any spots remain, from Tuesday 18th May for non-members (we DO NOT expect to have any available racing spots for non-members).
If you miss out on a race spot – you can be waitlisted – more details about this are below.

THE WAIT LIST
Wait List Process

When/if all 40 spots have been taken a wait list system will apply to additional entries.
Wait-listed boats will be offered spots as/if they become available in the order they join the waitlist.
To be added to the waitlist a fee of $150 must be paid.
In the event that a wait-listed boat is offered a spot – they will have 48 hours to accept and pay the remaining entry fee. If they decline when offered a spot – the waitlist fee will be forfeited.
A yacht can withdraw from the waitlist any time before they are offered a spot and receive a full refund of the $150 waitlist fee.
Any wait-listed boat not offered a race spot by 1 December 2021 – will be refunded the wait list fee in full in December. It is not expected that after 1 December any new boats will enter the fleet due to the preparation and build up time needed for this race.
