The Millennium Cup: 5 days sailing in the Bay of Islands

The Millennium Cup: 5 days sailing in the Bay of Islands

1 of 5 1/5


In the lead up to the NZ Millennium Cup (30 January - 2 February, 2019), New Zealand captain Blair MacLeod of Yachting Developments' 33.8 metre sloopSilvertip, available for charter with Ocean Independence, shares secret cruising gems in the Bay of Islands.

With bows pointed south, crew from all over the world will descend upon the azure waters of the Bay of Islands for the South Pacific’s premier superyacht regatta, the NZ Millennium Cup 2019. Ready to enjoy the relaxed Kiwi hospitality and spectacular racing the event is renowned for, we look at how you could extend your stay in this stunning location. From secluded anchorages and emerald coves to the sunken frigate Canterbury teeming with exotic marine wildlife, the Bay of Islands has it all.

Day 1: Russell

Upon arrival in Russell by helicopter, enjoy a leisurely lunch at the historic Duke of Marlborough pub; known locally for “refreshing rascals and reprobates since 1827” and as the venue for the NZ Millennium Cup’s opening evening’s cocktail drinks.

Anchor overnight in Russell.
