On a recent trip to New Zealand I had the good fortune to have a sail on Auckland harbour. The place we were staying offered a cruise on the harbour. We were taken out on a 34 foot sailing boat. On our return into the harbour we were confronted with one of the old Americas cup yachts. These yachts are available as cruises on the the harbour. There can be up to 30 people on them , standing room only. You can see the crowds on the deck! However under spinnaker it did make a great sight and a perfect end to my first ever sailing experience.
