Waitangi Day Picnic
Feb 6 all-day

Pack a picnic, and look on the most sheltered side of the island for the Little Jim and Lucinda with their burgees up, and cast your eyes ashore where we will have a big CYA flag in the sand.

Lucinda and Little Jim are dear old girls, if the sea is too heavy we may need to cancel – so watch out for an email notification on Monday if we are pulling the pin. If you still make it there, seek out the most classic-looking people you can!

Man o War Bay Wine Cruise
Mar 10 – Mar 11 all-day
Wine, classic boats and launches, and beaches! A great combination!
The passage race starts at Westhaven with the RNZYS Te Kouma fleet, and finishes in Man O War Bay on the beautiful Waiheke Island.
For those not racing, pack the family and make a weekend of it down at the Bottom End of Waiheke. Head ashore at Man O War for some great wine-tasting or perhaps a BBQ ashore on the beach.
CYA Cake Day @ Issy Bay
Mar 24 all-day

Join in the launch rally to Rangi! Islington Bay is home to the world famous CYA Cake Day. Make no mistake, there are prizes at stake, and they’re hotly contested. Bring your best nautical themed cake and test yourself against the finest bakers the CYA has to offer. Judging kicks off mid to late afternoon on the beach (or on the biggest boat!) after the race fleet arrives.

Riverhead #2 Cruise
Mar 25 all-day

Join the CYA launch fleet for a leisurely cruise up the upper Waitemata Harbour to the Riverhead Hotel for a casual lunch and catch up with other CYA members. Shallow draft yachts can happily follow the launches up the ditch; alternatively you can join us by car.

Easter Cruise
Mar 30 – Apr 2 all-day
