Hatfields Beach is located 2 minutes over the hill from Orewa Beach on the Hibiscus Coast Highway. Take the Orewa off ramp from the Northern Motorway to Grand Drive and follow it down to Hibiscus Coast Highway and turn left and head over the hill. Hatfields has easy beach access with plenty of parking. Boat trailers may be left on the beach, but at this stage not cars.
There will be 2 races distances. A 60 mile race will consist of 6 laps of the main track for new comers and the main race which will cover 100 miles. Both races will start together with the fun race finishing within the main race time. Fuel stops will be necessary to cover both race distances so competitors need to plan on having enough fuel for their particular crafts fuel consumption.
Riders will be required to wear an approved helmet, vest and wetsuit. A full length wetsuit, boots or shoes and gloves are highly recommended. Depending on weather, a tour coat or jacket may also be a good idea.
It is advised that family and crew should bring their own food and drinks. At this stage there is no onsite catering. Orewa is only 2 minutes away which has plenty of bakeries and cafe’s available. The prize giving venue has full Bar and Cafe facilities and will be open from 10.00am for anybody wishing to head there early.
This is an exciting new piece of water that has never had any endurance style racing held on it. The planned course is a very simple big rectangle that takes riders across the front of many of North Auckland’s most popular beaches and should provide spectacular viewing for locals who would have not seen PWC racing in their waters for over 10years.
We look forward to seeing as many of you out there as possible!
