The Maritime Museum’s wooden tall ship, Breeze, is sailing north for the summer. Usually based in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, this January you’ll find her taking part in the historic Mahurangi Regatta on the beautiful Mahurangi River.

You can join the crew and get close to the Regatta action with a special sailing experience from Sullivans Bay on the Mahurangi River. Breeze will be sailing alongside the Regatta's stunning range of classic vessels, and you can be part of the team on board. Help set the sails or sit back and enjoy the view from one of the best seats in the house.

Back on dry land, the fun of the Regatta is topped off with classic games including spud and spoon and egg throwing, followed by a prize giving ceremony and dance at Scott's Landing.

Crewed by a team of Museum volunteers, Breeze's Northland trip is a chance to showcase a piece of New Zealand’s maritime heritage to communities up and down the coast. Join the team on Regatta day and you'll get to experience what life would have been like for 19th Century sailors and marvel at the quick thinking and skilful work entailed in setting the sails and navigating the river.

With only 12 places available, taking part in the Mahurangi Regatta from the deck of Breeze is a unique experience to remember.
