NZ Millennium Cup 2015 set to draw attention to local industry

The New Zealand Millennium Cup 2015 has been announced to international media, and excitement is building amongst the yachting fraternity for next year's event, 21 to 23 January.

The NZ Millennium Cup draws global eyes to New Zealand, and is our chance to showcase our strengths - our quality, our innovation, our workforce, our cruising grounds - and cement our company names in the minds of decision-makers and discretionary-spenders.

The news the New Zealand Millennium Cup will be back in 2015 has garnered a positive global response. Superyacht news outlets globally ran with the story, calling it 'racing in the most-renowned waters on earth' and close-fought, fun racing, in just some of the international pieces published on the regatta.

The response to news the Cup will now relocate to the Bay of Islands and form an arm of the Bay of Islands Sailing Week has been just as positive; the superyacht world's excited to see these big yachts race in our waters.

NZ Marine’s figures show about 700 yachts visit New Zealand each year. Around 660 vessels are under 25 metres in length, and tend to be self-skippered as they cruise the country’s attractive coastlines. Around 35 superyachts over 25 metres in length also visit on annual basis, often combining cruising and tourist activities with the opportunity to have their vessel fully or partly refitted or maintenance work completed by the many world-class marine sector service providers around the country.

The New Zealand Millennium Cup was established in 2000 where 70 sail and motor superyachts raced to Kawau Island and enjoyed Kiwi hospitality. It’s been contested four times since then with racing taking place in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf.

'The New Zealand Millennium Cup is the premier superyacht regatta in the Southern Hemisphere,' says chairman of the NZ Marine Export Group Stuart Robinson. 'We feel sure the move to Bay of Islands will benefit our participants, the New Zealand marine industry and the country as a whole by attracting greater numbers of superyacht owners and their guests who will enjoy many other aspects of New Zealand – our world-class wines, food, tourism activities, golf courses and accommodation – while they’re in the country.'

The chairman of the Bay of Islands Sailing Week Ray Haslar is excited that this already successful regatta will continue to expand with the addition of a superyacht division and chairman of Far North Holdings Ross Blackman is equally enthusiastic given the economic boost these international yachts will bring to the region.

It's set to be a spectacular event which draws the world's attention to our shores and rightly focuses their attention on our second-to-none quality and innovation.
