Welcome Party & Registration
Friday 8 March

Yes, we're having a party the night before! The Wynyard Pavilion garden bar is where it's at.  Registration will take place at 7pm followed by a briefing and then we are into party mode.

Josh Leys band is ready for you to shake up the dance floor.  Festivities will wrap up around midnight - then you are free to hit other hot spots within the Wynyard/Viaduct area.

Berthing at Jellicoe?North Wharf

 We have the state-of-the-art pontoons and infrastructure provided by the Auckland Boat Show. Your vessel will securely tie up to individual pontoons, minimising the impact of other boats, tides, and winds for a worry-free docking experience.  All competitors boats are able to access the marina on Friday 8th March from 12.30pm and need to have departed by Sunday 10th March by midday. Berthing will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  This is a "locked area" so you will be issued with a gate code three days out from the event.  Check out the map and berthing zones to  ensure you don't end up in the wrong place!


Please sort and dispose of your waste and recycling into the designated bins located within Wynyard Quarter. 

Public Places Liquour Ban

The  Public Places Liquor Control Bylaw 2003 prohibits the consumption or possession of liquor in all public places 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This means you may not consume or carry alcohol through Wynyard Wharf public places at any time.

And then it's race time!  Starting at 12 noon, all boats start on the same starting line from North Head.  Check out the course for further information.
