Yachting New Zealand will again be at the Hutchwilco NZ Boat Show! Go find them in the Club Marine Discover Boating Centre, and enter to win your chance to participate in a Friday night rum race on a keelboat hosted by YNZ skippers in Auckland.

The popular Sailing...Have a go! programme will be a feature of the Youthtown Aqua Fun Zone, where schools on Thursday and Friday will come take part in a range of aquatic activities. At YNZ’s Sailing...Have a Go! stand, kids will compete in a relay to put on sailing gear, pack an Emirates Team New Zealand Spinnaker into an Optimist and race remote control Wind Warriors.
