Guests will join us and the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron on Thursday 2 November for the fundraising event of the year.
This year's event celebrates great yachties - past, present and future, and raises money for two great causes - the Sir Peter Blake Trust's Young Blake Expeditions programme and the RNZYS International Sailing Fund.
