Come along to the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s 150th Opening Day and see the brand-new release Swift Trawler 47 in person. Kickstarting the Squadron’s 150th year celebrations, the event will be a mix of on-and-off the water activities and a chance to get set for the summer racing season ahead.
A fantastic day of activities is planned including taking part in the boat parade or mark foy race, a 30 minute learn to sail experience, kids activities or lunch at the members bar.
The Swift Trawler 47 will be berthed at the events dock – wander down the docks to catch a glimpse of this New Zealand premiere model or register with us on the day and take a tour onboard.
Join us for the fun and be there for the Cannon fire at 11am!
