The Auckland Anniversary Regatta proceeded pretty as planned, much to the surprise of some mainstream media. Only Rawhiti and Ta'Aroa competed in both the Mahurangi Classic Yacht Regatta and the Auckland Anniversary Regatta.

It was a good opportunity to see the rest of Auckland's classic yacht fleet in action. They sailed in an easterly wind that was at the top end of racing for the classics - with all being reefed and sailing on an outer Harbour course.
