The chance to go on a multi-day adventure on Steinlager 2 or Lion New Zealand is rarely open to the general public but that's what the NZ Sailing Trust are offering right now. The trust have developed a couple of all-inclusive sailing experiences on Tikapa Moana, Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf - the Hauraki Gulf Paradise overnight experience (2 day, 1 night) and Nautical Fusion Adventure (3 day, 2 night).

These are wonderful adventures at the best of times but truly memorable when done on board Sir Peter Blake's boats Lion New Zealand or Steinlager 2. Of course, Steinlager 2 won all six legs to dominate the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Race.

Visit some picturesque islands and bays that few people have the opportunity to explore. Not only will you see stunning scenery and possibly marine mammals frolicking around, you will have a hands-on experience to sail one of New Zealand’s iconic world racing maxi yachts.

Stand at the helm where Sir Peter Blake once stood as he led his crew, taking on the challenges of the ocean as they sailed around the world.

Proceeds from each experience sold contribute to, and benefit, young Kiwis participating in the NZ Sailing Trust's youth development programmes.

This is a Buy NZ Made product for New Zealanders to enjoy.
