A few Auckland clubs have announced that racing will commence on 4th/Dec. Unless they know something that isn't public yet, this feels a bit overconfident in my opinion.  But it's a stake in the sand. I would expect the clubs to take their cue from Yachting NZ and YNZ will take their cue from Sport New Zealand. Sport NZ are still trying to work out what the Covid Framework means for sport teams, they have committed to making an announcement this week. https://sportnz.org.nz
