Regional Yachting Associations

Click on the links in the right hand menu for information on each of the Regional Yachting Associations in New Zealand.

There are eleven Regional Yachting Associations in New Zealand, and every member club of YNZ belongs to one of these associations. Each association plays a different role in their region, but the common denominator is that they facilitate regional collaboration of our sport.

Often, Regional Associations are involved in thing such as:

  • Promoting and encouraging participation in sailing at all levels
  • Regional coordination of training and racing programmes¬†
  • Liaison with local government groups
  • Communication with Yachting New Zealand
  • Support for major events
  • Funding support
