2015 will see the NZ Millennium Cup contested as part of the Bay of Islands Sailing Week in January. The link up between the two events was announced by Peter Montgomery at the prize-giving for the 2014 regatta on Friday 24 January.
As has become tradition, the NZ Millennium Cup will commence with a glamorous cocktail party incorporating a briefing for all participating yacht captains and owners in the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Running for three days, the regatta is a popular event that attracts a lot of interest each year. The regatta is a mixture of passage and harbour races that take place in the Huraki Gulf and the event is set to become the top superyacht regatta in the South Pacific, with more and more yachts attending the region each year.
