NZ Millennium Cup open for entries!


The Superyacht Group will once again assume its role as official media partner for the 2015 edition of the NZ Millennium Cup, which is now welcoming entries for the regatta, taking place from 21-23 January.

Next year’s regatta will move to the Bay of Islands for the first time and this exciting change has already led to registrations from seven yachts, the largest of which is 50m.

In a statement to the media, the organisers said:

'The New Zealand industry embraces the regatta as a chance to shine on home soil, showing off the best of the local superyacht sphere, as well as New Zealand’s natural charms.

'The Cup’s committee are looking forward to reinforcing the event’s reputation as the premier superyacht regatta in the South Pacific and would welcome the chance to discuss the event with any captains and owners interested in joining the dash for the line.'

The 2015 edition will move from Auckland to the Bay of Islands.

As a traditionally rich hub for the superyacht industry, the New Zealand market has had a mixed time of it of late and a premier midsummer regatta such as this will showcase the strengths of the country as a cruising destination. Indeed the change of locale, from Auckland to Bay of Islands, is a means of promoting the breadth of cruising on offer. And for the first time the New Zealand Millennium Cup will be held in conjunction with the Bay of Islands Sailing Week; a popular three day regatta with a reputation for exceptional racing.

There will also be a strong supporting social programme including an event at the Omata Estate where each yacht’s owner and crew will be paired with a vineyard for a unique tour and tasting session.

Sponsors of the event include Alloy Yachts, Yachting Developments, Smuggler Marine, Doyle Sails, OCEAN Independence, Port Opua and Robinson Interiors.
