Coming to watch the racing? Head to RNZYS

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS) will be open on Auckland Anniversary Day, and provides one of the best vantage points in the city to watch the Ports of Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta.

With the tugboat race and display taking place off Westhaven, along with the classic launch race and keelboat race starts, there is no better place to watch all the action on Anniversary Day.

Check out the Regatta Schedule to see what’s on when to plan your day.

Come and enjoy a drink and something delicious from the Member’s Bar menu while watching all the action on the water. And for those taking part in the regatta, enjoy dinner and drinks after racing concludes for the day.

Please note that at the current ‘red’ Covid-19 protection framework setting, RNZYS capacity will be limited to 100 people (first in, first served), and a valid vaccine pass must be shown on arrival. You’re also kindly asked to wear a mask until seated.
