We had great wind and the crew was very professional. It might be a little daunting to anyone a little shy around the water or has limited mobility.
The whole experience exceeded my expectations as it was a hands on the grinders and steering this magnificent boat although I live in Auckland and have been on the harbor in various boats many times this was some thing to remember. All the crew were so professional and gave freely of their knowledge of sailing. both to me us a and to the many over seas visitors on the boat who also enjoyed this unique time on the water. To match race against another Americas boat is some thing I will never forget and thank goodness my dearest Wife gave me this as a Xmas gift. I will certainly recommend this to all my friends and colleagues .
It was fabulous. We had great wind and the guys handling the boat were a long of fun while still doing a great job of boat handling. Would definitely recommend it! Thanks
Having the opportunity to sail on the NZL 41 was, and remains, one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of our holiday. We were encouraged to participate by the charming crew and also enjoyed the stunning views of Aukland from the harbour. Everyone who goes to Aukland should have a go at sailing this former Americas Cup Yacht.
Great day out! The guys on our boat were very efficient and got the safety drill across in a timely manner before heading out. Everyone should try grinding (ladies as well) as it is bit of a workout and good if everyone pitches in. From being behind at first we caught up and overtook so there was a great spirit on board. Lots of time for photo opportunities and to enjoy the beautiful Auckland scenery. Fantastic for tourist and also locals to enjoy time on the Harbour.
it was great!!! the staff on the boat were very informative and friendly
Excellent sailing experience - great conditions, very well run and professionally executed by an informative and friendly crew. Recommended.
My husband, son and I went on this trip, it was great fun, the staff were very helpful and friendly, as were the other passengers. It was our first time ever yachting, and although we had little wind, we had a great experience. Next time we are back in Auckland we hope to do the match racing sailing. Highly recommend.
Excellent in every way:
Skipper and crew were very competent and enjoyed showing their boat off;
Even saw the new AC 72 cats being trialled
We sailed on March 11th. A fantastic day made even better because the Volvo 70 Round the World yachts were coming in as we sailed around Auckland Harbour. An amazing experience.
I hadn't been on a yacht before and was interested in seeing how it all worked. The crew were excellent, friendly, funny and informative. Allowed people to assist but there wasn't an obligation to for those who prefferred to sit back. Great way to spend our last afternoon in NZ (and you get free tickets to the maritime museum too).
Great, a Must for any keen Sailor. Auckland is a wonderful place to sail and being on a very fast ex America's boat made it even more exciting
