  • Description

    The America’s Cup Yacht Race is the world’s oldest and most prestigious yacht trophy and ultimate yachting regatta. 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.

    You'll be encouraged to take the helm, wind the grinders or, if you prefer, you can just sit back and watch everyone else do all the work as you sail down Auckland Harbour. The trip suits people of all experiences and abilities - and is the perfect activity in Auckland, known as the ‘City of Sails’. Sailings subject to weather and minimum numbers apply. No experience necessary.
