HELD ANNUALLY ON FIRST WEEKEND IN DECEMBER: This year on the 6th/7th
The regatta is sailed in the first weekend of December in the superb sailing waters off Torbay Auckland. It hosts the most commonly sailed centreboard dinghy classes in NZ.
Although the regatta is predominantly youth there are many classes such as lasers, paper tiger and jollyboat which attract significant numbers of adult sailors. The regatta has quickly become NZ's largest centreboard regatta and one of the most respected sailing events in Australasia. It is endorsed by Yachting NZ as a 'significant regatta' which means the event has official judges on the water etc for added drama.
The Sir Peter Blake Regatta is a unique celebration of Sir Peter's life, his values and his passion for sailing. The regatta has exclusive rights to the name and blessing for the event from the Sir Peter Blake Trust.
