Bay of Islands Sailing Week 2025

Dates: 21st-24th January 2025
Location: Bay of Islands, New Zealand

Get ready for New Zealand’s largest multi-day sailing regatta, unfolding over four days in the picturesque Bay of Islands. The 2025 edition promises to be bigger and better, building on the excitement from last year’s milestone of 100 participating boats.

Bay of Islands Sailing Week, known as “the best big-boat regatta in NZ” by Peter Montgomery, is a volunteer-run event that has been celebrated by sailors since its inception in 2003. Originally inspired by Tony and Nina Kiff, the event showcases keelboats, trailer yachts, and sports boats while promoting the Bay of Islands as a top sailing and holiday destination. The event relies heavily on the dedication of about sixty volunteers each year. Their hard work, along with the generosity of sponsors, ensures that the regatta continues to bring international-standard racing to the New Zealand sailing community.

Mark your diaries for 21st-24th January 2025 and experience the camaraderie and competition at Bay of Islands Sailing Week. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a spectator, this event offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy top-tier racing in one of the most beautiful sailing locations in the world.
