The Burnsco Elliott 5.9 Traveller Series fleet will be heading to New Plymouth this weekend, 15 - 16 June, for the second round of the Burnsco 2024 Elliott 5.9 Traveller Series.

This is the first time the fleet has sailed out of New Plymouth. For many of the crews, it will also be their first time sailing competitively from New Plymouth.

The ability to easily tow the Elliot 5.9 has always made holding regattas at various locations a real bonus to the competitive one design racing. Seeking out awesome locations means each regatta has its own unique atmosphere, from varied racing to a good social vibe. The addition of a new location to the series on a regular basis keeps the series fresh and engaging.

New Plymouth has been a potential new location for some time and the class is pleased to finally add it to the series. An added bonus is that New Plymouth Yacht Club have Elliott 5.9s as part of their junior and learn to sail fleet. The Elliot 5.9 class has always supported sailor development, including having its own youth development boat. The class will look to pass on knowledge and tips to the local Elliot 5.9 crews. The class is also looking forward to having the New Plymouth development boats out on the water to add to the close one design racing.

If you are keen on being involved in the Elliott 5.9 Youth Development program, a competitive boat is made available free of charge to eligible crews, please follow this link.The Burnsco Elliott 5.9 Traveller Series fleet will be heading to New Plymouth this weekend, 15 - 16 June, for the second round of the Burnsco 2024 Elliott 5.9 Traveller Series.

Elliott 5.9 Youth Development Boat

On the water, much interest will focus on Revelry. Revelry is currently being campaigned by a team out of North Sails. While the crew and skipper can change between regattas, the wealth of experience at North Sails always ensures a competitive crew is on the water. Having placed second at the Marsden Cove nationals and then picking up a well deserved third overall at the first Burnsco Traveller Series event in Rotoiti, Revelry are well placed on the leaderboard.

Likewise, Slam Dunk will be starting at New Plymouth after a very strong performance at Rotoiti. They displayed good consistency in variable conditions, never placing outside the top four. They eventually found themselves just a few points behind the eventual winners, R+R. Slam Dunk would no doubt have felt if racing had taken place on the final day, they may well have come away with a regatta win. So, some unfinished business for Slam Dunk.

As always, the gatekeepers to any regatta win in the Elliott 5.9 is the always present R+R. While conditions may have been tricky and variable in Rotoiti, they still managed to find a way to keep themselves toward the front of the fleet to take out a narrow but deserved regatta win. R+R will also be at New Plymouth and will be expecting to add this new regatta title to their impressive collection.

A big thanks to the New Plymouth Yacht Club who have already put in the work to get this reggatta organised for the class. There are always many volunteers and behind the scenes organising to make a regatta work. The Elliott 5.9 class looks forward to enjoying the racing and hospitality that New Plymoiuth has to offer.

About The Elliott 5.9

The Elliott 5.9 emerged in the early 1980’s as a high performing trailer yacht and continues to deliver competitive one design racing in a welcoming fleet of world-class sailors and novices alike. The boats started a revolution with their well-balanced and cost effective design, and quickly became the boat of choice for top club training schemes and a breeding ground for NZ’s America’s Cup, Ocean Race and Olympic champions. Sailed by a crew of three, the Elliott 5.9 remains a low maintenance sailboat with an efficient single spreader fractional rig, a well-balanced sail plan and practical deck layout. Whether sailing among mixed trailer yachts, sport boat fleets or in a one design setting, the 5.9 is celebrated for its responsiveness and outstanding value.
