Event Details

NZ Sailing Trust aims to inspire, educate and motivate our young people to learn about our environment and come sailing and what better way than to sail on the Lion NZ maxi yacht.  Leave Auckland behind and explore the Hauraki Gulf under sail. Lunch stop and swim at Motuihe Island or similar island in the Hauraki Gulf.

Lion NZ is an ex Whitbread Round the World racing yacht that was sailed by Sir Peter Blake. Lion NZ has recently had a full refit and is ready to take our young people out to explore the Gulf.

No experience necessary, just a sense of adventure and fun.  Hot drinks and safety gear provided.
