Boats may enter from any place in the upper North Island, with start lines operating from Tauranga, Whangamata, Auckland and Whangarei.
Boats are divided into two classes: Racing and cruising. Prizes are awarded to sailing performance (including a trophy) for each event.
The major prize is awarded by random draw from all boats which participate in 3 events. Past prizes have included a trip to Valencia to watch the America's cup, B&G chartplotter, and travel vouchers.
The regatta has been held for 15 years and looks set to last for many more years.
More details can be found in the sailing instructions issued each year.
