Kia Ora from Sailing Events Takapuna
The waters of the Hauraki Gulf off Takapuna Beach have seen many yachting contests over the years and has been the training ground for sailors from beginners in an Optimist through to the worlds elite in the high tech AC72’s of Emirates Team New Zealand and Prada Racing. Since 1980 10 World Championship events have been held in these waters with the assistance of staff from Sailing Events Takapuna.
World Class facilities for regattas are right on the beach front at the Takapuna Boating Club over two floors with meeting rooms for Race Control and the international jury, 2 hospitality areas, one with its own kitchen, and all the usual amenities you could expect from a world class boating events centre. The Takapuna Boating Club has a proud history of hosting international sailors and all visitors are made welcome.
The passionate Team at Sailing Events Takapuna have many years of sailing and event management from local National events, Americas Cup, Louis Vuitton Trophy, Volvo Ocean Race and multiple World Championship events. The skill and knowledge of the Team combined with the Takapuna location with accommodation, restaurants offering a variety of cuisine, shopping and other local attractions all within walking distance Takapuna, Auckland is the logical place to hold World Championship events.
We all look forward to having you come and compete in 2014 and enjoy some “Kiwi” hospitality.
Come to Takapuna and join the FUN.
I look forward to meeting you.
