The inaugural Nelson Regatta was conceived in 2009 by a group of local sailors, with ambitions of placing the region back on the national sailing map. Over the years the format has evolved to create a competitive and social week of racing that showcases the beauty of Tasman Bay.
This year we are expanding the regatta to incorporate Sports boats and Trailer Boats, and there will also be a cruising division for keeler owners who want to take part but prefer not to race round the buoys.
The regatta is scheduled to start on the evening of 19th January with a rum race in the harbour for Sports Boats and Trailer Yachts, and these will start two days of round the buoys racing on Saturday. During this time the annual Wellington to Nelson race, and a feeder race from Waikawa will bring visiting keelers to Nelson. Keeler racing will start on Sunday with three races round the cans for the Romeo and Juliet divisions, and a coastal race  for the cruising boats. On Monday the keelers will set off across Tasman Bay for three days of coastal racing including a night in Torrent Bay and a party at the Pohara Boating Club in Tarakohe. All keel boats will need to have sufficient food, accommodation and fuel on board for 3 days and 2 nights away from Nelson.
The warm pristine waters of Tasman Bay have been the playground of New Zealand Olympic and World Champion sailors for many years. This is your opportunity to join this tradition as the Tasman Bay Cruising Club welcomes sailors and supporters to the region.
