The America’s Cup is the world’s oldest and most prestigious sporting trophy and the ultimate yachting regatta. Usually the domain of billionaires and elite professional yachties, former America’s Cup yachts NZL 40 and NZL 41 offer the unique opportunity for everyone to participate while sailing on these grand prix-racing machines. Passengers become the crew and are encouraged to take the helm, exert energy on the grinders or simply sit back and enjoy the action as you sail down the Auckland Harbour.
The Auckland metropolitan area is the largest and most populous urban area in the country with a population approaching 1.4 million residents, or 31 percent of the country’s population. Auckland has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world and the melting pot of European, South Pacific and Asian cultures and strong indigenous Maori heritage brings an abundance of unique dining, shopping and touring experiences. Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, earning it the nickname “City of Sails”.
