10 weeks to go until BOISW 2019

Christmas is only 6 weeks away, which means there’s only 10 weeks to go until CRC Bay of Islands Sailing Week 2019! Will you be joining us for three awesome days of sailing and partying in the Bay? If you haven’t already, better enter now!


Remember a late entry fee of $75 will apply after 31 December, so get in quick and save yourself some cash.

Book Now for Beach Party

If you haven’t already heard… where have you been?! The much-loved Bay Week Beach Party is BACK, thanks to the good folks at Explore and Otehei Bay. Ferry spaces are limited, so book your heavily discounted ferry tickets now to make sure you can make it to the party!

Room for one more?

Last year we put the call out for crew spots for Bay of Islands Youth Sailors – and we had a fantastic response. Wetherley made room for two young crew, who were so confident by the end of the regatta they sailed the boat themselves, while owners Tony and Nina put their feet up!

If you’ve got room to give a young sailor a regatta experience that’s not to be missed, please contact committee member Nick Webley on 021 262 8599 or email.
