Auckland’s Waters to Host RNZYS Celebrations

Auckland's Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf will be centre stage in 2021 for a series of sailing spectacles aiming to capture the attention of visitors and enthusiasts from around the globe.

Set to be an extraordinary year for New Zealand, 2021 will mark the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s (RNZYS) 150th anniversary and Emirates Team New Zealand will be attempting to defend the US’s Cup.

To celebrate the rich history of the RNZYS a full year of on and off water events are being planned starting with the battle for the Auld Mug.

Formed in 1871 and now one of only seven in the world, The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron's sesquicentenary marks a legacy of world-class performance described as being globally unrivalled in sailing history.
