America’s Cup sailing on Auckland Harbour was fabulous. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly and included everyone in the action of sailing the boat.
Best day ever!

Great crew and an incredible adventure. A must for anyone who appreciates the America's Cup and sailing. My only hope is to return and do it again.
Great sail!

We had a great sail on a 1995 america’s Cup boat. The crew was friendly and let us help sail the boat. Anyone who wanted took a turn at the helm. The boat is well taken care of with few changes to it from when it raced. We had nine paying people on board which was a good number. The winds and weather were also good. This is a good way to spend two hours in Auckland.
Windy 😁

Great to be on an Americas Cup boat in Auckland Harbour and we were lucky to have both good winds and sunshine. However crew very inexperienced - apart from skipper. Briefing was rudimentary at best - no explanation for non sailors of what tacking or gybing were for example. Boat had been badly prepared and the crew could not drop the mainsail without someone going up the mast to fix a jammed slider. Quite a lot of money for what it was.

I was very disappointed by the sail. The boat was great indecently fast, the crew knowledgeable, weather nice, however, the boat was simply too crowded to enjoy. There were 30 passengers and 5 crew on the boat. When racing, these boats had a crew of 11. It was like sailing a crowded elevator, not a fast, agile racing boat.
