2010 BMW Auckland Regatta sports new website

by Zoe Hawkins

The BMW Auckland Regatta is one of the premier sailing events on the New Zealand keelboat racing calendar. Jointly run by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and Bucklands Beach Yacht Club, entries are invited from all keelboat clubs throughout New Zealand.

Racing in 2010 will take place in the Northern Leading Light in order to be closer for boats coming from Tamaki River and Auckland Marinas. Divisions remain open until entries have closed, and for 2010, a new division has already been established for the classic yachts, which will race on their own courses.

Divisional winners from the BMW Auckland Regatta will be eligible to advance to the BMW Sailing Cup. This will see competitors sailing off in identical Farr MRX yachts for the honour of representing New Zealand in the BMW Sailing Cup World Final to be held in Auckland in March.
