Long time Emirates Team NZ America's Cup campaigner and Round the World sailor, Tony Rae, is one of many in the AC72 crew who are WeetBix fans.

WeetBix are a New Zealand breakfast food made from wheatflakes compressed into a mini brick. To fans they are a food like nothing else. To others they are a revolting, dry, bland offering, worse than cold porridge.

Said to be one of the secrets to the sailors long lasting energy when sailing the AC72's is a mass supply of WeetBix. Tony Rae as the world's biggest fan of WeetBix was given a dream job of picking up a new supply.

In this video Tony sets off in the team pick-up to collect almost 500kg of WeetBix from Sanitarium, makers of Weetbix.
