Planning for the 2013 Auckland Regatta has begun. It’s time to mark the date and book the crew!

The Auckland Regatta (formerly the BMW Auckland Regatta), New Zealand’s premier keelboat regatta is jointly run by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and Bucklands Beach Yacht Club. Entries are invited from all keelboat clubs throughout New Zealand. This prestigious regatta is now in its sixth year.

Announcing entries
We are delighted to announce the Elliot 5.9s will celebrating their 30th anniversary by hosting their national championships as part of the Auckland Regatta. A large fleet is expected to participate. We welcome back the Elliot 7s from RNZYS who have confirmed they will be onboard. The Farr 1020s and 8.5 multihulls will also do their nationals.

Pacific Keelboat Challenge
The MRX fleet will be used once again to host the Pacific Keelboat Challenge. An invitation to compete in the regatta has gone to international yacht clubs. Our Australian competitors loved this year’s event, we hope to see them again in 2013!

Notice of Race
The notice of race is now on the website, well in advance of the regatta.
