Nelson Yacht Club is excited to be hosting the 2020 NZ Starling National Championship in the second week of the April school holidays. The 14th and 15th are registration and measurement days, with 4 days of racing scheduled from the 16th – 19th.

We’ve got big plans for a great regatta & some fun social events. We’ve got some great sponsors on board, but we’re still looking for more to help us put on a fantastic event!

Massive thanks to our Gold Sponsors:

Scott Construction made fantastic work of repairing the club’s deck after the storm surge damage in 2018, and have very kindly come on board as a gold sponsor.

Sealord need no introduction, and it is great to have such a household name, and a global (yet Nelson based) brand on board as a gold sponsor.

Wendy Pearson & Debbie Watson have been making big moves in the Nelson Tasman Real Estate market – we think you’ll love the region and want to move here – they can help 🙂 For locals thinking of selling, make sure you list your property with them!


Thanks to our Silver Sponsors

Nahm is a fantastic dining experience, upstairs in the Nelson Yacht Club building. Delicious food and great views! Make sure you take advantage of a special 10% discount voucher that will be included in registration packs!

Kiwi Silent Disco will be providing headsets for the ‘AP Silent Disco’. If we are under AP ashore, you’ll be able to check out a set of headphones and either get pumped up for the day ahead, or chill out with some relaxed beats and save your energy for the racing – you’ll be able to select from 2-3 channels of music! Please don’t take them on the water though! 😉

The NPD fuel station in the Port is where we go for fuel, and you should too! It is on the corner of Vickerman St and Wildman Avenue. There is also a truck stop pump that can be used on a pre-pay basis when the shop is shut. Alternatively there is a Self Service discount station at 76-82 St Vincent Street, Toi-Toi, Nelson.
