Watch the action!

Watch Auckland’s harbours come alive on Auckland Anniversary Day, and see the maritime history of the nation in action, at the Ports of Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta.

Generations of Aucklanders have fond memories of watching the Auckland Anniversary Regatta, held annually to celebrate the founding of the city in 1840.

Enjoy a great day out for the whole family, with lots to see all over the city. Pack a picnic and watch the action from a viewpoint on land. Head down to the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and enjoy light refreshments from the best seats in the house. Or get up close with the action by booking a cruise or taking your own boat out to watch the races on the water.
