Prizes to be Won

There are loads of prizes and prize money to be won at the Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta, along with our historic trophy collection.

Cash prizes for winners
Cash prizes are awarded as a proportion of entry fees received for first, second and third places. The more entries in each race, the bigger the cash prize pool!

Early Bird Cash Prize Draw
There’s also a $1,000 cash prize awarded by random draw to one skipper who enters before the early entry cut-off date of 31 December, takes part in the regatta and attends the post-regatta Prizegiving ceremony where the draw will take place.

Historic trophy collection
Our historic trophy collection is valued at nearly $100,000, and is on permanent display at the Maritime Museum. Perhaps what’s most special about winning a race in the Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta is that your name is engraved on the trophy and you become a part of nautical history - forever.

Spot prizes
There are loads of spot prizes to be won from our generous sponsors. But you must be at the Prizegiving ceremony to claim your prize!
