Nelson Yacht Club is looking to build on the growing success of its annual Whakatu Regatta. Held over the middle weekend in January, it is a great time for families to visit the Nelson & Tasman region and enjoy some fantastic sea breeze sailing in Tasman Bay. The event plays host to various South Island Championships from time to time as well as National Championships for smaller classes.

So far we have the Europe, RS Feva and 29er South Island Champs slated for 2022.

We will intend to run casual short course racing on the evening of Friday 14th January.

Other classes are invited to contact us on manager@nelsonyachtclub.org.nz if they are interested in hosting their South Island or National Championships in Nelson.
