PIC Insurance Brokers sets sail with the Harbour Classic

In an exciting development PIC Insurance Brokers are thrilled to reveal its new role as naming-rights sponsor of the 2024 Harbour Classic. 

Inspired by the legendary Barcolana Regatta in Italy, the Harbour Classic offers a twist on traditional races with all sailors converging on a single start line before embarking on a thrilling sprint around the harbour.   The 2024 PIC Harbour Classic, part of the Moana Auckland Festival initiated by Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, will also see a multitude of exciting events.  These festivities aim to celebrate the maritime culture and bring people and sailors together in an unforgettable experience.

Amanda Savill, CEO of PIC Insurance Brokers, expressed her enthusiasm for the new venture into the Harbour Classic: “We are thrilled to support the PIC Harbour Classic and extend our long-standing and successful partnership with the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club.”

“This event has incredible potential for growth, and we are excited to be part of this journey. The ocean is part of who we are as New Zealanders and PIC is proud to be the insurance broker of choice for the New Zealand sailing community.”

Adrian Percival, Commodore of the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club, organisers of the event shares his excitement about PIC’s partnership: “We are immensely grateful for PIC Insurance Broker’s support and their enthusiastic embrace of the Harbour Classic.  Their involvement in this event resonates with our mission to foster a vibrant, inclusive sailing community as well as bringing Aucklanders and visitors together to enjoy our amazing harbour - the city of sails.  We’re looking forward to delivering a fantastic event with PIC by our side.”

The PIC Harbour Classic sets sail over the weekend of Friday 8 March 2024 with a welcome party, followed by racing and prizegiving on 9 March.  As part of entry, participants will enjoy two nights free berthage at Jellicoe Wharf, right in the heart of the action surrounded by fellow sailors. 

ENTRIES WILL BE OPENING SOON - so for now, mark your calendars for the 8th and 9th of March – it’s going to be an absolute blast.
