Being known as the 'City of Sails,' Auckland is recognised as a
yachtsman's paradise, so it is no surprise to discover that its
annual official Regatta is the biggest one-day Regatta in the
world. This historic event was first held in September 1840 and has
sailed on through turbulent years and changing social trends to
become a family outing full of fun and excitement. Numerous events
take place in the harbour and surrounding waterfront to complement
the actual yacht regatta.
