There’s nothing like the thrill of watching the America’s Cup or ocean racing yachts up close in a stiff breeze on the spectacular Hauraki Gulf. Cruise New Zealand is your luxurious ringside seat to all the action. Having previously hosted guests to view both the 2000 and 2003 America’s Cups and numerous Volvo Ocean race stopovers in Auckland, we have the experience to make the up and coming events truly memorable.
Our superbly appointed vessels are moored in the Viaduct Basin area, which is home to the 2021 America’s Cup team bases, and hosts the Volvo Ocean Race during their stopover in the City Of Sails.
The action starts with a Christmas regatta in December 2020, followed by the America’s Cup Challenger series in January and February 2021 with the America’s Cup match in March.
Over the same period, superyachts will be racing in the New Zealand Millennium Cup which has been relocated from the Bay of Islands to Auckland. The historic J Class Yacht Regatta and the Tall Ship Regatta round out an extraordinary summer of yachting on the Hauraki Gulf and you can be at the centre of it all with Cruise New Zealand.
