Usually the domain of billionaires and elite professional yachties, the NZL 40 and NZL 41 America's Cup boats offer the opportunity for the likes of you and I to participate, sailing at full pelt on these grand prix racing machines.
Your three hour experience begins in the Viaduct Harbour where you will meet the crew and go through a short race and safety briefing. The yachts then depart the Viaduct Harbour and after a period of practice, the action really begins, when we line up in the pre-start and compete head to head.
