Planning for the 2011 BMW Auckland Regatta is now in full swing, so now is the time to mark the date in your diary and book in your crew!
The BMW Auckland Regatta, New Zealand’s premier keelboat regatta is jointly run by the Bucklands Beach Yacht Club and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.
Entries are invited from all keelboat clubs throughout New Zealand.
Divisions will be finalised closer to the event, but 2011 promises more divisions, new courses and loads of fun. Organisers expect a greater spread of classes and divisions than last year, which included a wide range of keelboats, multihulls, sport boats and trailer yachts. For 2011, a cruising division will be established with courses for those who want to be part of the action at a relaxed pace.
Some changes to the social programme are coming, so watch this space.
Thanks to our loyal sailors, we hope you are planning your 2011 BMW Auckland Regatta entries.
