Club Marine Insurance renew Major Sponsorship with the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is excited to announce that our long time sponsors Club Marine Insurance have renewed and extended their Major Sponsorship of the RNZYS for another three years.

Club Marine Insurance will continue as naming rights sponsors of the Squadron’s very popular Wednesday Night and Winter Series sailing events. The Club Marine Insurance Wednesday Night Series and Club Marine Insurance Winter Series are the largest keelboat series in New Zealand, with over 100 boats partaking in every race of each event.

Club Marine Insurance have also confirmed that they will extend their support of the Squadron by taking on the naming rights sponsorship of the RNZYS Cruising Series and RNZYS Fishing Division.

• The Club Marine Insurance RNZYS Cruising Series is a more casual sailing series where competitors race to a specific Hauraki Gulf destination on a Saturday afternoon followed by a get-together BBQ/ drinks on a beach before staying the night and making their way home on the Sunday. This series is also very popular among Squadron members and is growing larger every year.

• The Club Marine Insurance Fishing Division has something for the whole family from our competitive 10/10 month long competition to kid’s and ladies fishing competitions. This division is growing year on year and we look to encourage more launch/ fizz boat owners of the club to get involved with this division.

Club Marine Insurance have been a Major Sponsor and supporter of the RNZYS for many years now, and RNZYS General Manager, Hayden Porter is very happy to have secured them as part of our family of sponsors for another three years; “Club Marine Insurance are a leading provider of boat insurance throughout New Zealand and Australia, and we believe having them as a Major Sponsor and naming rights sponsors of our Wednesday/ Winter Series, Cruising Division & Fishing Division will further boost the profile and popularity of these ever growing divisions, as well as increase participation and engagement. We look forward to working with Club Marine Insurance & providing benefits to RNZYS Members through this new partnership.”

Club Marine Insurance Manager, New Zealand Nick Meister is also very glad to be continuing their support of the Squadron for the next three years, “It is an exciting time for RNZYS and we are thrilled to extend our sponsorship for a further 3 years.”

The RNZYS looks forward to seeing this partnership grow the profiles of both the RNZYS and Club Marine Insurance as well as sailing in the Auckland area.
