Sheer Sailing Pleasure o/b Americas Cup Racing Yacht (Part 2)
As we proceeded into the Bay, the water turns slightly choppy. We were told that the boat is going to take us to a position near Rangitoto Island (see map below). That's about half an hour of sailing. A lot of small yachts and cruiser were seen criss-crossing and zig-zagging around us. Not seen so much sailing activities as I have seen here in New Zealand. I have been told that the Kiwi's have many notable sailors : Sir Russell Coutts, Sir Peter Blake, Dean Barker and Chris Barker just to name a few. Winning the America's Cup have brought fame and much needed publicity to the Country which was famous for her meat and dairy products.
