Ports of Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta

Ports of Auckland is the primary sponsor of the Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta, held in January each year. Our four tugboats participate in a popular regatta highlight, the tugboat race.

In 1840, the first regatta marked the day that Auckland was made a city. The Ports of Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta is now New Zealand’s oldest sporting event, amongst the biggest one-day regattas in the world and great fun for all Aucklanders – sailors and spectators.

Watch the regatta in action from multiple viewing spots: Bastion Point, North Head, East Coast Bays, Tamaki Drive, Orakei Wharf, Princes Wharf and Wynyard Quarter.​
