Dockwise Yacht Transport has announced a partnership with the New Zealand Millennium Cup to offer a discount on southbound shipping for the 2013, 2014 and 2015 editions of the popular superyacht event. The discounted DYT voyage for 2013 will sail from Palma de Mallorca, Spain, at the end of November and stop in Le Marin, Martinique, Port Everglades, Florida, and Golfito, Costa Rica, in December before arriving in Auckland in time for the regatta’s February 14 start.
The 2013 New Zealand Millennium Cup, hosted by the New Zealand Marine Export Group, runs from February 14-17. Its format is a mix of harbor and passage races in the Hauraki Gulf intended to make the most of the region’s yachting environs. The program of events gets underway on the evening of the 14th with a cocktail party and briefing for owners and captains. Racing and further social events take place over the 15th and 16th, with the last of the racing taking place on the 17th, followed by a dinner, official prize giving and entertainment to close.
