The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is New Zealand’s leading yacht club, with an illustrious history dating back to its formation in 1871.
The RNZYS is also the official home of the America’s Cup after Emirates Team New Zealand, representing the RNZYS, won the oldest sporting trophy in the world at the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017.
In 2021 the RNZYS will celebrate 150 years of existence that will see a variety of regattas and events take place throughout the year. None more so important than the America’s Cup Defence itself. We invite you to join us for this very special year.
