Feel the thrill of sailing an authentic America's Cup yacht!
On this 2 hour experience, you'll discover the excitement of sailing on a world-class vessel, which previously competed in the America's Cup. The America's Cup is the world's oldest active sports trophy and the most prestigious sailing regatta. For 2 hours, you get to live out your sailing dreams as you take the helm to help steer the course or work hard on the grinders to hoist the mainsail. This is a totally unique hands on sailing adventure on Auckland's Waitemata Harbour that you won't forget!
If that all sounds like a bit too much work, you can also choose to relax with the wind in your face as you sit back and take in the best views of Auckland. The professional crew is on hand to chat about the techniques, tactics and principles of sailing these impressive boats.
