Thursday 3rd November 2022
Save the Date for our Corporate Regatta that will be back in 2022, bigger and better than ever.
Enjoy drinks and canapés on arrival before a harbour race on a member’s yacht, before returning to the Squadron with tasting stations, special cocktails, live music and dancing until midnight!
We will have Live & Silent auctions with over $100,000 worth of items to bid on, supporting our International Sailing Fund and Kawau Tree Planting & Restoration Project.
Notice of Race
We are raising money for these two important club initiatives:
KAWAU TREE PLANTING AND REFORESTATION PROJECT
A part of our 150th celebrations this LEGACY project has been at the forefront of our plans to replant our forest area on Kawau Island. This includes pest control, land clearing, installation of walking tracks and replanting of native trees. This is an effort to contribute to the longevity of the environments and native bird life in which RNZYS members use & enjoy. This is a long term project that we hope to plant 12,000 trees from large specimen trees to small undercover plants and restore the bush and native birdlife over a number of years. Funds raised from our Corporate Regatta will go towards this important environmental project.
RNZYS INTERNATIONAL SAILING FUND
Our International Sailing Fund (ISF) was established in 1980. Since then, funds raised through our Corporate Regatta have helped hundreds of our sailors compete on the local and world stage, in all kinds of boats, from Olympic Classes and International Match Racing to Offshore races. With COVID-19 impacting international travel our sailors need funding more than ever so that once we’re able to travel again we can get as many of our club sailors and race officials to as many possible to domestic & international events.
