Experience the thrill of joining the crew of a multi-million-dollar America's Cup yacht and sailing on the waters of the legendary City of Sails. Built for the 1995 and 2003 America's Cup in San Diego, NZL 41 and NZL 68 are berthed in Auckland's Viaduct Harbour waiting for you to board and sail out into the Hauraki Gulf. This exhilarating high-seas adventure is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that's sure to get the heart pumping. The sailing conditions in the Hauraki Gulf like gusty winds, strong currents, and unpredictable weather patterns are challenging and demanding, making the America's Cup sailing a true test of skill, strategy, and teamwork. During the approximate two-hour cruise, you'll be asked to participate in sailing these powerful yachts-to grind a winch, trim a sail or take the helm.
