With summer fast approaching we know you’ve got a long list to get sorted. So make sure you add your entry for BOISW (Tuesday 23 to Friday 26 January, 2024) to the top of that list! The Notice of Race is published and entries are now open for NZ’s best big boat regatta so click here to enter now!
Want to see who’s already entered? View the Entry List page here.
How to enter for BOISW 2024
Entering is a breeze! Online entry is via TopYacht, which means you can pay online as you enter, and if you’ve used TopYacht in the past, your details should all be pre-filled for you. Easy as!
How to enter via TopYacht:
- Follow the link to the entry page
- Select the Series you wish to enter (if you’re not sure, check the Notice of Race Section 5 for details or check out the Q&A Section for answers to some frequently asked questions.)
- If you’re already on the TopYacht register, select this option to pre-load your details. If not, select the last option “add a boat” to set up your boat in TopYacht first.
Late Entry Fee
We know a lot of you will be busy with Coastal Classic prep, but don’t forget to get your entry in for BOISW 2024 before 31 December 2023. You can still enter after that date but our late entry fee is $100 after 31 December. So it pays to enter early!
And it helps our volunteer organisers with their planning and organisation knowing entry numbers for each division early.
And it’s always easier for you and your crews to find accommodation when you plan ahead nice and early.
Remember to Book your Berth!
When you’re booking a berth at Bay of Islands Marina – Opua, remember to let them know that you’re coming for Bay of Islands Sailing Week.
The marina team try very hard to make sure there’s room for everyone coming for the regatta, but they don’t always know until much closer to the time which berths will be available, so they’ll add you to their list and assign berths as they come up.
Book your berth online or by calling 09 402 7124 https://www.bayofislandsmarina.co.nz/booking-a-berth/
Join the fleet Whatsapp
Stay up to date with important announcements by joining the fleet Whatsapp group. We’ll also be using this for race management during the regatta too so skippers should definitely join up – Click the link below https://chat.whatsapp.com/Iao85onRQZLBS7ivkq279H or scan the QR code attached.
This year our Regatta HQ will be at the fantastic new venue at the southern end of the Bay of Islands marina. Race control and the marquee will be set up on the grass area next to the launching ramp, giving us more space, better views from the bar and seating areas, and better access from most parts of the marina. Huge shout out to Bay of Islands Marina & Far North Holdings for making this superb space available to us. We look forward to welcoming you there so get your entry in now!.
And if you haven’t booked your marina berth yet, then we’d highly recommend you don’t leave this too late! It’s the ideal place to call home for the week with hot showers, pump-out facilities, a diesel fuel dock, wi-fi and more.
