My World Tour:  America's Cup 2003, Auckland New Zealand


Back to Home Page        to New Zealand Main Page

Landing in New Zealand from Australia, we were lucky to catch the last 2 races of the America's Cup yacht racing.  The Kiwis had won the cup the past 2 times and were defending it.  This is a BIG deal in NZ.  Sailing and rugby are what the country eats and sleeps.  It was a fabulous event.

Unfortunately for the Kiwi team, the mast snapped right in 2 during one of the races.  This is the boat coming into the harbor.  Pretty cool to see the broken boat, but a bummer of a day for our Kiwi friends.
