Harbour Sail or Match Race on an America's Cup Yacht - Auckland
Harbour Sail - corporate events nz
NZL 40 and NZL 41 are America's Cup Class yachts, both built for the 1995 America's Cup in San Diego. The yachts offer a unique opportunity to experience sailing an authentic America's Cup grand prix racer, the equivalent in motor racing of driving a F1 race car on Auckland Harbour - New Zealand's yachting playground. Your two hour sailing experience starts in the Viaduct Harbour where you meet the professional crew and are taken through a short safety briefing. The yacht then heads out to the harbour. The sails are hoisted and passengers become the crew, encouraged to take the helm, exert energy on the grinders or simply sit back and enjoy the action as you sail an America's cup yacht down the beautiful Auckland Harbour.
This is a very popular client event as it provides good opportunities to communicate with clients while enjoying an experience they might not otherwise have the chance to try.
This event is suitable for groups of up to 60 people
Match Race client event
NZL 40 has a racing partner NZL 41. To add a little zing to your client event, you can participate in a match racing event on one of two fully powered Americas cup yachts.
This three hour experience begins in the Viaduct Harbour in downtown Auckland where you meet the professional crew and get taken through the safety and race briefing. The yachts will then depart to the harbour where passengers will take their positions for a brief period of practice. The experience then really begins as the two Yachts line up under international match racing pre-start conditions, just like in the America's Cup and compete head to head. Passengers will be involved in the racing, calling tactics, grinding, and even protesting the offending yacht!
Even if you have never sailed before by the time you hop off NZL 40 or NZL 41 you will be an expert guaranteed!
This client event is suitable for groups of up to 50 people.
