Experience the thrill of sailing one of the yachting world’s famous Whitbread maxi yachts on Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. Inspired by the adventures of Sir Peter Blake, your corporate team will enjoy unrivaled sailing that brings to life the values of leadership, courage and teamwork.
Sir Peter Blake had a very specific idea of the boat that he wanted to build for the 1985/86 Whitbread around the World Race. The boat had to be light but stiff, be very fast when reaching and under spinnaker and resulted in one of the finest International Ocean Racing (I.O.R). maxi sloops ever built. The 1984 Sydney to Hobart Race, the true test, Lion New Zealand crossed the finish Lion in First Place. Lion NZ went on to finish 2nd Place in the 85/86 Whitbread Around the World Race.
