Great Blake Race 2018 - protecting our oceans together!
On Thursday 1 November, the Sir Peter Blake Trust is excited to once again partner with the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron for the 5th-annual Great Blake Race Charity Regatta!
This is the major fundraising effort for both the Sir Peter Blake Trust and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and proceeds support two great causes for New Zealand's future leaders:
- Sir Peter Blake Trust's Young Blake Expeditions takes young New Zealanders on life-changing environmental adventures that follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter Blake.
- RNZYS International Sailing Fund helps our most talented youth sailors take their yachting careers to the international stage.
Following the 'Great Blake Race', guests look forward to an evening of spectacular food stations, beverages and a live auction with over $100,000 worth of amazing money-can't-buy items!
The online auction site featuring all the items will be open to view in mid-October and everyone will have the opportunity to register for the auction. The auction will then go live in the week leading up to the event, allowing everyone to start bidding!
