For the full calendar – click on the image above – individual events are listed below.
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!
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.
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.
