This is the Southern Hemisphere’s premiere tall ships race – vessels come from all over to participate. A spectacle of sail and a light hearted race of classic vessels organised by the Russell Boat Club, Bay of Islands. The iconic Bay of Islands event is now open to sailing vessels of all shapes and sizes.
Racing is followed every year by a prizegiving and traditional hangi at the Russell Boat Club with live bands and dancing until late.
