The Bay of Islands Marina All Points Rally is open to local Kiwi yachties and to all sailors completing an ocean passage to New Zealand. It is held in mid November, at Opua in New Zealand’s stunning Bay of Islands.

Resources are provided for cruisers to help make the passage south, with details on weather, routes and what to expect. On arrival, Opua welcomes the fleet with just over 10 days of fun, food, seminars and activities.

Yachts can depart from any port in the Pacific. There is no fixed date for departure, so the best weather window can be used.

Full details and a rally entry form are available at Island Cruising.

The event is now in its eighth year and is getting bigger and better each year. This year the Rally program incorporates the Opua Cruising Club’s Seafarers’ Week and concludes with the Bay of Islands Marina Trade and Community Fun Day.

The All Points Rally is regarded as Northland’s premier marine showcase with something for everyone, whether you are a boat owner or local resident.
