FULL LENGTH TOUR DESCRIPTION
The America’s Cup is the world’s oldest and most prestigious sporting trophy and the ultimate yachting regatta.  Today you will have the opportunity to participate in sailing one of these magnificent grand prix yachts. 

Your two hour sailing experience will begin at the Viaduct Harbour where you will meet the professional crew and be given a short safety briefing.  You will then board your yacht and head out of the America’s Cup Village, past the syndicates and super yachts, to the open water.  Here you will be encouraged to take the helm and exert energy on the grinders.  Or, if you prefer, you can just sit back and enjoy the action as the yacht sails down the beautiful Waitemata Harbour.

On your return to land you will head to the nearby Loaded Hog pub to enjoy a celebratory glass of beer, wine or a soft drink before strolling back to your ship.
