Following Monday’s COVID-19 Government announcement, Auckland will continue to stay in Alert Level 3, Stage 1. Recreational boating is allowed within your household bubble from today, and we encourage you to get back out on the water.

All the below is subject to government, YNZ & Sport NZ updates and have based the below on moving to Stage 2 of Level 3 from Wednesday 13th October and Stage 3 of Level 3 from Wednesday 20th October.

Therefore the RNZYS will open our retail shop from the 13th October. Opening hours will be from Tuesday to Saturday, from 9.30am to 4.30pm. We will be able to open the RNZYS for hospitality from the 20th October.

We are working to re-schedule any events that cannot go ahead under the restrictions on the date advertised. Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you back on the water or at the RNZYS soon.

We have plenty planned for our 150th summer in 2021-22, both on and off the water. See our calendar below to find out more!
