Advocacy

Yachting New Zealand have a significant role in advocacy and environmental sustainability, looking out for the interests of yacht clubs and their members as well as the wider sailing and boating community.

We have a nationwide viewpoint. When we submit, we submit with a voice of just over 31,000 people from 109 clubs, 50 class associations and 40 maritime organisations. This carries far more weight than an individual voice.
